Having had a chance to look at all the specs on the matrix, there are
a few that simply cause my eyes to glaze over and give me headaches
even thinking about how they can be compared.  Those specs share the
"bloated spec" facet:

    Due to a broad scope, overengineering, overspecification, or over
    eager writing, this spec is huge.  Developers are encouraged to
    break up the spec into more managable pieces.

  Spec                Bloated spec
  ------------------  ------------
  BizTalk             no
  ebXML               no spec at the link on the matrix
  eCo                 yes
  ICE                 yes
  IOTP                yes
  Jabber              no
  LDO                 no
  LOTP                no (not yet, there's broad scope yet to be defined)
  SOAP                no
  Userland's XML-RPC  no
  WDDX                no
  Wf-XML              no
  XMI                 yes
  XMOP                can't tell from the link on the matrix
  XP                  no
