Subject: Synchronizing references across the WS-RX/SX/TX specifications

To the Members of the WS-RX, WS-SX, and WS-TX Technical Committees,

Recently many of the WS-* specifications in the OASIS WS-RX, WS-SX  
and WS-TX Technical Committees have reached, or are close to  
reaching, the significant milestone of becoming OASIS standards. As  
these specifications are being completed at different times and in  
different committees some of their normative references are not  
synchronized. Some of these specifications reference the W3C  
submission of WS-Policy 1.2. Some of these specifications reference  
both the WS-Policy 1.2 submission and WS-Policy 1.5 which is still in  
progress at the W3C. Some of these specifications reference final  
OASIS specifications and others reference the contributed drafts.

We believe that it would be beneficial to the community to have the  
same references in a synchronized set of the RX, SX, and TX  
specifications. Having a consistent set of synchronized references  
across all of these specifications could enhance eventual interop  
profiling, provide a more consistent experience across  
implementations and provide a basis for subsequent specifications. We  
propose that after the current specifications in the OASIS WS-RX, WS- 
SX and WS-TX TCs have reached OASIS Standard status and after W3C WS- 
Policy 1.5 is a W3C Recommendation that the references in the RX, SX,  
and TX specifications should be updated to create a new synchronized  
set of standardized versions of the RX, SX and TX specifications. We  
would like to see these updated references point to only the WS- 
Policy W3C Recommendation. We recommend the TCs' charters should be  
clarified to reflect this direction.

Thank for your consideration,
