Yes, Bentley has posted a spec for the OpenDGN standard, but you have to 
sign a license/NDA agreement, which is somewhat more restrictive than 
the OpenDesign.org membership that you have to sign to get the libraries 
themselves. Also note that unlike the other OpenDesign libraries, the 
OpenDGN libraries are available for Windows only.
