Not spending as much time sitting in meetings and fighting with other 
vendors is one of the competitive advantages PostgreSQL development has 
vs. the "big guys".  There needs to be a pretty serious problem with 
your process before adding bureaucracy to it is anything but a backwards 
move.  And standardization tends to attract lots of paperwork.  Last 
thing you want to be competing with a big company on is doing that sort 
of big company work.
