The proof is in the success, as I said. Agreement should follow.

My benchmark would be when they're actually in use on a large scale, not
when people agree to use them. Agreement is a necessary but
insufficient condition for success; the other necessary condition is
that what's agreed upon actually works at scale. IMO, Web services
don't; they're not late bound, like every other successful system on
the Internet today.
