Subject: [ws-sx] 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,
