The Internet and Web communities are bubbling over with 
proposals for the use of XML in network protocols and 
distributed applications - XML-RPC, SOAP, XMI, WebDAV, 
ICE and IOTP are only a few examples. The goals of this 
panel is to review these and other proposals and identify 
their common threads, while taking into account 

1. the wishes of developers for lean, lightweight 
   protocols, and 

2. the commercial needs for robust technologies that 
   will support the full weight and demands of 
   business-to-business ecommerce systems

The panelists hope to engage the audience in the evaluation 
of a range of proposals, and continue discussion that 
separates out the needs for common, interrelated standards.
