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.
