Agree but need and nice to have are different.  The set of IDEs 
and toolsets that make a difference to the commercial developer 
isn't that large and will shake out further in accordance with 
market forces.  The issue of incompatibility is like going to 
the races with lead in the track shoes.

Or at least not interoperably.   If the various groups don't converge, 
they throw the market momentum to MS and it isn't like they need the 
help at this point.   Those who want to play in the web services 
market must provide compatible, compliant XML Schema implementations. 
They must decide what that means.  We can't decide for them.

That's the idea.
