OWL-S is focused on Semantic Web Services so they can be expected to be biased
toward Web Services specifications.  This, of course, doesn't justify incorrect
or misleading statements.  

When the OWL-S notes were first submitted, I read this:

and saw (as David did) that they must have completely missed BPSS.  The Note in which 
this bullet appears is supposed to outline the relationship, including overlaps, of 
OWL-S and other specifications.  Since this is clearly incorrect with respect to 
ebXML BPSS, I suggest that OASIS send an official note with suggested text to correct 
it.  If there are also statements that mis-represent the chronology of ebXML and
Web Services specs then I suggest that this be officially noted as well.
