I should say (if we're going to be evaluating onlist various systems) that
one of the things that appealed to us about OCS was its integration with
Open Journal Systems and examples of universities that had integrated OJS
and OCS into their institutional repositories. Having a lot of
applications that don't talk to one another should be seen as a limitation
in any evaluation.
