Exactly, POD charts have been in use worldwide for years by Class A chart suppliers.....

When my employer goes in to the chart supplier with a request for 10 or 20 charts for one of our ships, they don't get them off the shelf, they print them off while you wait, all corrected and up to date...

All that will happen is the smaller chart supplier, without POD facilities, will obtain there charts for resale from a Class A supplier instead of NOAA, it's been happening like that here in Australia for some time now.....

Many of the larger ships have had POD facilities on board for a few years now.....

There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken advantage of at the flood, leads over the reef, on to adventure. Those men who fore go this high water of their life are forever left to ponder, a life bound wallowing in the shallows.......Julius Caesar
