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."
