This message kicks off discussion on goal 15, time to market.  Please
comment on goal wording, success factors.

The goal as stated is:

organize its efforts in such a way as to adress vital time-to-market issues
for its products, including iterating over successive refinements of the
overall requirements for the standard reference architecture.

I think this is worded well.

Critical Success Factors
1. Is the Web Services Activity a center for web services standards
specification, that is is the community able to start new working groups in
a manner that is usable by the community?
2. Is the WSA perceived as a reliable forum for architectural guidance?  Do
other working groups ask for advice from the WSA, or do they not bother?
3. Is the WSA document perceived as usable and referenceable in time for
products?  New/revised products would be able to reference this WSArch doc
if it was delivered in time for their products.
4. Does the WSA demonstrate a reasonable number of re-use decisions rather
than re-inventing?
5. Is the architecture document regularly revised?
6. Is the architecture document regularly referenced by other
specifications, including but not limited to W3C specifications?
7. Is there a lack of press/developer commentary that refers to
time-to-market problems with WSA?  To paraphrase, no press is good press on
this issue.
