In the long run, our goal is to see that any government that requires a technical standard as law makes that data available in a clueful fashion. That means real text with real markup in an open format. Our goal is to see that happen, but we can make that goal happen way quicker if we give it a big push. That's what we're doing with this Kickstarter campaign.
The bottom line is in a couple years, we can make many if not most legally-mandated technical standards available on the net. It would take far longer to get the code people to do that for us. On the other hand, in a sustainable world the code people need to making the laws available to the citizens, and our hope is that by "showing by doing" we get the governments of the world to imitate our work and do this themselves.
This is a strategy I've used successfully in the past. For example, I ran a version of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's EDGAR database for two years, then got the SEC to take our system over. Likewise, I was able to push the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office into putting a clueful version of the patent database online (although that effort took well over a decade).
