A very safe bet :-)

There's nothing in the WSA charter or requirements about conforming to any
flavor of the 7-layer networking model, AFAIK.  I'm unfamiliar with the
IETF's position on this as a normative model for the highest-levels of the

hearing from anyone besides Mark who believes this is an important issue.
