This is why people have stopped believing in standards

The OASIS WSDM TC has decided to submit the WSDM specifications as an OASIS standard despite the negative vote. This is really bad for Web Services standards. Greg Pavlik blogged about what has been happening in the TC (post 1, post 2, post 3).

I totally agree with Greg. How can we possible have a standard when its building blocks are moving sand? WS-Addressing is not complete and the work on WS-RF is still on going. As Greg pointed out, WSDM spec even uses versions of other specs that don’t exist anymore. This is a big big joke and it seems to me that the only reason this is happening is because companies/groups want to get their work stamped as a standard so they can market their services/products as being compliant. This is so bad for OASIS.
