We have now uploaded the paper Joe refers and also a powerpoint  
presentation that summarises the key points for a standards audience.

It was prepared for discussion in the CEN and ISO standards community  
- the whole issue of data standards and the interchange of PT data is  
being discussed at ISO at present, and there is a parallel proposal  
within CEN for a new European XML timetable exchange schema to replace  
a number of national and proprietary standards.
