No Tim, that's the answer.  Common goals achieved by 
common means, not common control.  Put the definitions in 
place by performance, not uberNamespace.  It has to 
breathe, my friends, like a good well performed piece 
of music, it has to breathe.

The standards wonks really need to study management 
and contract negotiation.  OASIS and BIZTALK are 
the absolute wrong way to do this.  This means a 
marvelous lucrative opportunity is sitting there being 
ignored.  Someone or some company will get rich 
off this if they go to these companies and demonstrate 
the right way to do this.
