I think it's pretty obvious that many vendors are playing this game of proprietary "standards".  Just because it 
happens does not mean the customers (us) should accept it, which is the primary point of my posts.

An recent article on CTO Zone/Infoworld said it well:

"...over the years, standards organizations have become the technology equivalent of smoked-filled back rooms 
where everybody is trying to find an edge at the expense of everybody else. The end result has been to retard the 
adoption of new technologies in the interest of maintaining a marginal proprietary edge that makes more profits for 
them while everybody else deals with the market consequences..."

Does that sound like the WS-I to anyone?  Sure does to me.
