Subject: Notice of withdrawal from ws-description formal objection


 Dear Jonathan and Hugo,


This is to inform you of our withdrawal from the formal objection,
raised by HP, Sonic, Sun and IONA when WS-Description Issue 134:
"Proposal for adding Compositors",
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/2/06/issues.html#x112 was closed with no
action on 5 March, 2004. We see WS-Policy as having progressed
sufficiently to now provide a viable approach to the problem of
asserting the capabilities of a Web service.  We further feel the issue
of compositors is better addressed within the context of policies than
within WSDL.  Finally, our concerns about WS-Policy existing outside of
the standards process have been greatly ameliorated by the change in the
IP statement in the latest draft of WS-Policy, in which the
specification authors clearly state that they will provide royalty-free
terms and conditions to specification implementers.  We are therefore
withdrawing from the above-mentioned objection.
