Perhaps my previous message didn't get through, or perhaps it was
misunderstood.  The paper I previously referenced, "A Correlational Study of
the CMM and Software Development Performance", published in the Crosstalk in
Sept of 95 and available at
http://www.stsc.hill.af.mil/CrossTalk/1995/sep/Correlat.html
reports on some very nice experimental research done for a Masters thesis.  It
does, in fact, show statistical correlation between CMM level and cost (also
schedule).

Indeed, much more research is desirable.  It is not easy to get good data that
stands up to controlled research conditions, but at least some good data is
out there.  There should be a lot more available by now.
