[E][C] Enough Specs Already!
An Evil Empire (a.k.a. Microsoft) engeneer Don Box, one of the original authors of SOAP spcecification, said another day something I can certainly agree with:
"The software industry has become so fixated on new specifications [relating to SOAP et al] that it has lost sight of the fundamental goal: using XML to link software applications together. While some new specs that have been proposed are important and useful, others are too complex and still others will probably never be used, including some from Microsoft."
