Paul,

You are correct.  In March 2006, HP, IBM, Intel, and Microsoft published 
the joint whitepaper you referenced to develop a converged set of Web 
Services specifications for resources, events and management.   The 
roadmap described the technical strategy to build on existing standards 
and specifications and define a unified set of next generation Web 
Services specifications for simplifying interoperability and 
composability.
 
The reconciliation effort jointly published valuable specifications 
including WS ResourceTransfer (WS-RT) and WS Resource Catalog (WS-RC).  
These specs are now moving to a broader community of vendors and customers 
---  WS-RT is referred to in the proposed W3C WG charter and WS-RC is in 
the DMTF.
 
As for the other pieces of work that were proposed by the harmonization 
roadmap, including WS-EvN, if, and until the time that something is 
produced from the harmonization proceedings, other activities in the WS 
community should not delay their work in anticipation of new documents 
being produced.

Kind regards,

- Steve
