whereas in the Web Services community, as exemplified by WS-I one could
argue that interoperability is undermined by some vendors having greater
standing within the organization than others

although I should check if that is still the case, I just remember the
Sun brouhaha from a couple years ago.

how about: 
Interoperability could be further enhanced by relying on UBL for providing
the Common Expression, perhaps also Common Vocabulary. 

Actually I'm having some difficulty understanding the sharp delineation
between Common Expression, Common Vocabulary, and Common Semantics. 
It seems to me that Common Semantics is that if we have a concept of x
referred to by the term y we should not suddenly use y to refer to
But then that also seems to me to be what Common Vocabulary is. I
that Semantics refers to meaning, but meaning invariably devolves to its
referents at some point. 

What these terms seem to refer to for me is the possible confusion
engendered by situations such as the xml and uml terms for things not
matching in BPSS, necessesitating section 7.2

Common expression I can see as not being interoperable because all sorts
sets of terms are allowed.
