Subject: RE: [wss-m] IBM's Position on Submitting WSS-M for ISO Standardization

I would like a clarification:

Do OASIS rules require a number of interoperable implementations of each spec before is may be submitted for JTC1 PAS ballot?

If we cannot find that number of  interoprating implementations, this question is somewhat moot.

Oracle is neutral on ISO submission. We agree with Calvin’s comments that it has value and that most of the work has already been done. However we have no significant resources to commit to it and therefore do not insist on it.

David and other members of the Work Group,

I have discussed with my colleagues the proposal that was raised at the last WSS-M Work Group meeting to not submit WSS-M to ISO and instead put the work group into maintenance mode.

IBM continues to believe this is a robust, broadly accepted standard and that there is value in seeking ISO standardization.  Given that no substantive changes have been needed for this update, we would not anticipate any obstacles or objections in the ISO committee. As noted on our last call, several other standards from OASIS have recently  "sailed through" the ISO process and we would not expect our experience with WSS-M to be any different.  Therefore IBM would prefer to stick to the work group's original charter and submit the standard to ISO.
