Well, we've got a handful of existing Internet applications - why not
start with those?  Even if we just find the lowest common denominator
constraints of those systems, I'd suggest that we'd have a better idea
for learning which are conducive to Internet scale use than if we
started from systems like CORBA or EDI (which are arguably where Web
services started from).

Perhaps.  But I think folks really *do* want Web services to work at
Internet scale.
