Here's another insight I had a long time ago. Every piece of #OpenSource code is a standard. Not explicit, but implicit. It is hiding in stable APIs and long term sustainability of any Open Source project. Most of the time it can stay in that implicit state.
That's why since many, many years I have proposed that standards should come with three things: The standard, an #OpenSource reference implementation and a compliance checker for other implementations. It's a simple and obvious way to solve a lot of problems IMHO.
