I think the TC consensus is that if WS-Sec does go forward in an open
standards process then we would use it; but if it doesn't, well, we don't
know.  We could probably have a lively and extended debate on what would
happen in a variety of speculative scenarios.  I think the current
proposed message is clear enough without sounding like an ultimatum, and
without obliging us to engage in the extended debate.  So I'd rather not
include your proposed sentence.
