Following hot on the heels of the unfortunate revision to the EU Interoperability Framework, the UK Cabinet Office has issued its own definition of Open Standards

Thankfully, it requires any Open Standard to be royalty-free - something recently taken out of the EIF - and, even more significantly, explicitly requires that it "as a whole can be implemented and shared under different development approaches and on a number of platforms.".

OOXML anybody? Laughing

(Thanks to Linux Today and ConsortumInfo.org for the tipoff)
