Please don't. I think a working open-source ZIS would be quite useful.
I think the questions Tom has are useful to consider but for me they don't make a case against an open-source ZIS at all.
Are the SIF schemas an ZIS communication protocol specifications proprietary or open?
I do know that the development of new schemas seems to be a process limited to members ($$) of SIF. This is unfortunate.
