I am disappointed. I thought OASIS was going to address this. They had
formed a Web Serices Component Model TC. But now, just recently, that TC has
changed its name and charter. It is now the Web Services for Interactive
Applications (WSIA) TC. I get the distinct impression that web services
specs are the hostage of a heated vendor war to be the first to really rake
in bucks selling web service tools and servers. The vendors are thrashing
about in a frenzy looking for that quick rubber stamp on a "standard
compliant" label they can stick to their products.

It would probably be a good thing to keep this out of the W3C until things
cool down.
