I'd give it some more time before short circuiting.  For every person who is confused now there are problem 3 or 4 other people lurking who haven't thought about it enough to be confused yet.  Confusion is the start of progress.  The fact is that words like "interoperability" are thrown around by marketing departments so much that we've been dulled to what they mean.  All we know is we want more if it.  It will take a few iterations on this list before we all penetrate the surface and come to a common understanding of what the technical challenge before us actually is.
