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 
its services

o  Implement - design and procure the software for the 
AIS and encode the organization processes and enterprise 
knowledge required to execute missions contracted as 
system services

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/
