I would suggest that you look into licensing the ODA Consortium Software
Toolkit.  Not only is the Toolkit "commerical" quality, but it also is

   - DAP independent
   - Provides many "tools" useful to ODA implementaters
   - Based on the ODA skills of Bull, DEC, IBM, ICL, SNI and UNISYS
   - Intended to produce ODA conformant FOD11, FOD26, and FOD36 data
   - Probably the common implementation tool for future ODA enabled

That's at least if you really want to "do" ODA.  I personally, would
recommend "do-ing" some form of SGML application myself.
