Carl,    (01)

When trying to leverage existing/published standards work on SOA, I
would strongly recommend you also seriously evaluate the OASIS
SOA-Reference Model TC work - Duane Nickull and Frank McCabe have both
presented the work on Ontolog previously. (I'm sure you are aware of
the resources already). This work has done a fine job defining the
terminology and capturing the attributes & relationships among the key
components of Service Oriented Architecture. ...  See:    (02)

OASIS SOA-RM TC homepage -
http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=soa-rm    (03)

Duane's Ontolog Presentation (vision & early thoughts):
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?ConferenceCall_2005_02_17    (04)

Frank's Ontolog/SRI Presentation (on the adopted standard):
http://ontolog.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?OntologWorkshop_July_2006#nidOMS    (05)

I might even suggest that you arrange a meeting where both the OASIS
and the Open Group folks can present and allow the community to
discuss and have a Q&A about their work. ... Actually, the
Collaborative Expedition Workshop #57 - 23-Jan-2007 at NSF (Arlington,
VA, USA) on "Collaborative Organizing Workshop: Opening Up Networked
Improvement Activities Around Service Oriented Architecture in 2007"
might just provide that opportunity too.    (06)

... I'd suggest for those who are interested (in SOA especially) to
respond to Susan Turnbull's invitation and participate at that Jan-23
workshop (ref: 
http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/2007-01/msg00002.html)    (07)
