When will WS == Working System?

WS-xxx is supposed to be composable. Great. How do we tell the potentially solid connections that *work* from the illogical, or simply broken, connections that don't work?

I suppose that is where Indigo will give you Microsoft's working combinations based on some declarative attrbutes. (And those attributes themselves may work in Microsoft's C#, but not in some other language provider's dotnet compiler.)

How do I figure out in some Java implementation of WS-xxx what to provide to line behaviors up with the Indigo implementation? This is probably more of a mess than necessary.

And where are all those web services, anyway? Does their apparent absence have anything to do with the WS-xxx soup? Shouldn't one just use HTTP[S] after all?
