Umm... probably because this is a bit of a yawner.
Glad to see it otherwise.
It is good that the participants have decided to
cooperate but nothing about this other than that
is news. Registry-based description systems for
services have been recognized as the way to do
distributed operations cross-company since
DICE (DARPA Initiative In Concurrent Engineering, K.I.
Singh, et al) initiative.
Let's see, AISS (Automated Information System Services,
circa 1991) originally described as part of a synthetic
engineering model (B2B didn't exist as a term then):
o Specify - play a role on the definition of the
AIS and the contractually negotiated specification of
o Implement - design and procure the software for the
AIS and encode the organization processes and enterprise
knowledge required to execute missions contracted as
o Administer - maintain and upgrade the system services
in accordance with contractual requirements and requests
for improvement or expansion of these services
o Control - ensure that all system services are provided
and are performed as specified with the contracts
Interestingly, the Trust model was emphasized then too.
The organization model idea came from "Beyond the Knowledge
Level", M.S. Fox, Expert Data Base Systems Proceedings of the
First International Conference

I haven't seen any mention of the UDDI (Universal Description, Discovery and
Integration) initiative for web services on this list. It was "officially"
announced today by Ariba, IBM and Microsoft. See http://www.uddi.org/
