To be fair, without the template libraries etc and 
stylesheets finally being a tractable affair instead 
of requiring the deep knowledge of DSSSL or FOSI, or 
the abstractions of HyTime, it was hard to move forward 
with a lot of the original initiatives that fed this 
sudden burst of cooperation on enterprise sharing document types.   
Simplicity has virtues that make cooperation not just 
desirable, but absolutely necessary to avoid the speeding 
truckload of money and to "getchasum".

Yes as with namespaces, the land grab is on, but at 
least it is desirable land finally and not a swamp of 
complexity. :-)  OTOH, watching some of my colleagues 
struggling, those years in the swamps have the virtue 
of training so that these relative deserts battlefields 
are easy to master.  I guess I should finally rewrite 
Enterprise Engineering but somewhere someone is probably 
doing that.  There is a lot to know when creating 
process/control models for enterprise entities.  It 
will be fun to see how the emergence matches the 

QOS?   Quality of service?  Yes, definitely.  That and 
poisoning the information well are still problems.  QOS 
is an issue with any contract environment and we live 
with survival of the fittest, reputation, trust but test 
and verify modes as in any negotiated performance.  The difference is 
speed and not having automated metrics yet.  So, as 
predicted, the catastrophes are still an issue in the 
open broadcast/closed loop control systems.  They will 
tier the QOS properties no doubt.

UDDI is just a registry, and is hence limited in it's 
effectiveness by the entries in it... which ultimately 
boils down to a degree of trust, because no organization
has control over the registry (yet).

Like domain names, there will probably be fierce competition
over entries in the global repository, and there will be
QOS issues.
