IMO, there's been far too much waiting, considering what's at stake.
I've had enough of it, frankly.  Let's all work together to at least
confront this issue head-on, because I'm sure we're all tired of it.
If I lose, so be it.  If I win, hopefully my prospects of finding a
new job will improve. 8-)

Besides, what I have to say to the WSDL WG, they don't want to hear.
And I already said it when I voted against chartering the Web Services
Activity; HTTP defines a sufficient application interface.
