While both those are good examples of mostly working organizations
shepherding foundational technical standard(s) along... there is one thing
more important than their processes: Their stance. Both organizations have
a very strong engineering discipline of keeping deployed things working
without change. I don't think it is enough to simply model their process.

Until about three years ago, the Haskell community also had such a
discipline. It has been steadily eroding over the last few years.
