I would second Sebastian here. While I would not enter the debate of  
whether an ODD spec is a piece of software or not, I can identify that  
we need some functionalities such as:
- version management
- compilation (to generate the documentation and schemas)
- online dissemination
That are very close to what we do with any other piece of code. The  
notion of "stability" for an ODD spec is to my view to difficult to  
grasp to imagine being able to put a link to such version in a TEI  
wiki page.
