Subject: Synchronizing references a Synchronizing references across theWS-RX/SX/TX specscross the WS-RX/SX/TX specs

It is encouraging to see several members recognize the need to 
coordinate the activities of at least some of the WS-* technical 
committee (TCs) or work groups (WGs), especially with respect to their 
normative references and across organizations.[1] The proposed actions 
are highly desirable, yet provide only first steps to encourage 
meaningful results for this complex set of WS-* specifications.

The proposal presented below warrants further discussion, both within 
individual OASIS TCs and across those TCs as well as with other 
organizations. OASIS has a mechanism for coordinated discussions such as 
Joint Committee (within OASIS) and a liaison policy (for external 
coordination outside OASIS) [See a and b]. Sun recommends that such 
avenues be established to provide a public forum for such discussion and 
that all relevant WS-* TCs and WGs appoint representatives. We believe 
these are appropriates mechanisms to begin to resolve coordination 
concerns in an open deliberative body such as OASIS and in collaboration 
with other organizations.

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,
