I highly recommend W3C members join X9. You get access to the ISO's and 
X9 membership is not cost prohibitive either! :)

Nick, as I mentioned, I have seen many ISO's are dual published. I have 
seen several ISO's that are 2 pages long and just reference an IETF RFC 

The ISO publishing is just to make it more official in the international 

Also, the 2% is not worth the money. Trust me. Its all filler.

So publish an RFC. Then publish an ISO that just references the RFC. 
Problem solved. As mentioned this is a normal practice. There are many 
options to fit all needs.
