The WSDM TC has asked OASIS to approve WSDM despite the 7 No votes.  However, the TC would like you to know that we take your concerns very seriously, and out of respect for your issues we would like the opportunity to respond to your concerns.  

The WSDM TC understands your concerns with the WSDM V1.0 dependency on non standard versions of specifications. However, the TC believes that there is an industry need for standards for management using Web services and management of Web services that are implementable today. WSDM 1.0 is first industry standard that meets this need. The WSDM TC made WDSM 1.0 based on explicit versions of the specification in order to eliminate any ambiguity with regard to what it is dependent on and therefore ensure that WSDM is fully implementable and interoperable.  The TC did ensure that that the references are not in violation of OASIS policy.

The WSDM TC is expecting standard versions of these dependent specifications; therefore the TC will create a new version of the WSDM specifications to refer to the standard and, if necessary, make changes to WSDM specification to come into compliance. Any updated versions of the WSDM  specifications will be put though the normal OASIS standardization  process. Many companies are implementing and looking forward to the upcoming interoperability activity.

These specifications are referred to in a normative way.  WSDM can not be implemented without using them.
