Could you explain what OASIS provides at a true cost of more than $1000 per
member?  After a glance at their website, it appears they discuss documents
and then publish them.

Their work appears somewhat less ambitious than what Debian does, yet
Debian doesn't charge $250 to $1000 per member.

I'm wondering what we'd get that's worth more than $1000.
