= a stronger version of Open Standards
By the FFII:
"An open standard of which there is a complete reference implementation of the standard under a FLOSS license, or indeed, GPLd software or whose complete specification can be got for free and without any condition.
• Open Standardisation Process: Inclusive and transparent standardisation process. Examples include the Request for Comments policy (RFC) of standardization bodies as IETF.
• Complete reference implementation: An implementation of the standard that is self-sufficient and covers the whole standard." (http://action.ffii.org/openstandards)
