OK, perhaps PREMIS isn't ready yet. However, not being an
"international standard" will limit the audience
that can and will implement PREMIS.
Also, correct me if I am wrong; but, simply because a standard
has been published by ISO does not mean that the source
standard has to be removed from public access by the sponsoring
standards body. For example, the OAIS reference model (i.e.,
CCSDS 650.0 B 1 = ISO 14721:2003) is still
freely available on the web.
