"Unfortunately, we don't really have anyone in the industry in control of the standards and their evolution.... ...we don't have a single organization really driving the definition and the architecture of Web services. In separate spaces, you have vendors working on specs separately and you don't really have anyone pulling them all together.... What you get are specifications that are technically very similar but backed by different communities because there's still some idea that vendors need to compete over who controls the specifications."

-Eric Newcomer, CTO, IONA, in a recent interview
