Subject: Re: [regrep] [Fwd: [regrep-semantic] IBM BI-ICS]

For the most part I prefer to reference standards works as opposed to 
private works, but I make exception for some things -- especially when they 
provide essential functionality AND when they contain an open copyright 
notice. Such is the case with WS-Addressing.

WS-Addressing provides essential functionality -- a standard mechanism to 
reference a Web service endpoint. In my opinion, it's one of the most 
critical WS specifications published last year. I am not aware of any 
competitive effort that is currently defining this type of mechanism.

And I suggest you read the copyright notice [1]. It the most open spec 
notice I've ever seen.
