Folks:  Let me add support for Wikipedia as a platform for this 
effort.  Wikipedia is actually where I often start out when looking for 
technical standards and file format definitions.  Here are some articles I 
have actually consulted recently:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jpeg_2000
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DV#Related_video_formats
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bext

Apart from helping to create / maintain Wikipedia articles on different 
standards and practices, we might be able to develop a new page called 
Digital Preservation Standards and Practices, drawing some of the content 
from the existing Digital Preservation page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_preservation

which itself needs a lot of work.  The list of standards on our new page 
could be more lightly 'cataloged' than perhaps was done in the planning so 
far.

It would be great to work in an environment where experts in other fields 
could contribute to the knowledge base, although I can say as a sometime 
Wikipedia contributor, that that can sometimes be a little unsettling 
too.   Not sure if there would be a way to scope such a page or set of 
contributions so that they can reflect libraries' needs and approaches.
