TAG Resolution endorsing W3C Team Comment on the identifications of WS Transfer resources.

FYI, during their distributed meeting of the 6th November 2008, the TAG reached concenus on the following resolution [1] which is relevant to the recently announced [2] "Web Services Resource Access Working Group" [3].

"RESOLUTION: Regarding the WS-Transfer submission: (1) We agree with the Team Comment (http://www.w3.org/Submission/2006/04/Comment) noting that WS-Transfer resources are potentially identified by more than just a URI, making them unsuitable for referencing and use in other Web technologies, e.g. in the context of traditional Web links or RDF assertions. (2) There is a risk, depending on how WS-Transfer operates over HTTP, that WS-Transfer might not benefit from existing deployed infrastructure such as proxies."
