Subject: [regrep] Re: [ebsoa] Re: [regrep] 20 reasons why web services arelike Paris Hilton

Let's start with specific chapter and verse for these shall we?

Interoperability or lack thereof between various specifications/standards?

Interoperability or lack thereof between various Web Services-based 
application frameworks?

Addressing specifics is perhaps more helpful than simply decrying the 
current state of affairs, so a list of these would be an adequate 
basis for discussing ways in which interoperabiity could be improved 
or established where it is lacking.

Also, where there are conflicts, it seems to me that making it known 
is a reasonable place to begin a dialog between the adherents of 
conflicting mechanisms, standards, specifications.
