Technical drawings are standardized thorougly via set of ISO standards:
http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue/catalogue_ics/catalogue_ics_browse.htm?
ICS1=1&ICS2=100

There are also Computer-aided design (CAD) related ones:
http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_ics_browse?ICS1=35&ICS2=240&ICS3=10&

e.g. ISO 128-21:1997 Preparation of lines by CAD systems

ISO standards are not freely available and has to be purchased. Some of them
can be found scanned across the Internet.

There are several attempts to offer suitable archive format for technical
drawings. Besides CGM there is also DWF format developed by AutoDesk:

I thing it would be nice to contact major CAD developers (AutoDesk, PTC,
Dassault Systèmes) to cooperate in this area.

Regards, Jan
