Several members of this list were on a panel discussion at Web Services Edge
today about WS standards, led by Anne Manes.  She used this article
http://www.cio.com/archive/100103/standards.html as discussion fodder, and
others may find it interesting.

"Everyone wants Web services standards. CEOs think the technology will
create new opportunities. CFOs believe it will save millions. Vendors see a
pot of gold at the end of the Web services rainbow. And CIOs know that
linking to customers and partners over the Internet will revolutionize both
business and IT. So what's the holdup? The usual suspects: Politics. Ego.
Suspicion. Fear. Greed. "

Who, us? :-)

But seriously, while I disagree with much of it, we clearly do have to
consider it as a datapoint about the public perception of what we
(collectively, not just WSA WG or W3C) do.  

Paul Krill of InfoWorld was in the audience; it will be interesting to see
if he writes anything about the panelists' collective rebuttal.
