In terms of OGF standardization, the standard is actually not
finalized before it goes through public comments. I understand that
you have the implementation of the spec in production, but for OGF
the spec is still a draft document, not a standard.

And that is also all correct, AFAIK.
As a side note: it is rare that a draft specification with just one
implementation receive comments which require significant
implementation changes. Even if the comments do, it is up to the
group to discuss the comments, and to follow those requests, *or*
*not* (within reason though).
OTOH, public comment is a good opportunity for the implementor group
to make sure that impl and spec do actualy match.
