I think you ought to catch up with the rest-discuss chat on this whole 
area before jumping head first into the spec; we are trying to find out 
from mark "WS-Addressing" hadley whether this will be something for 
good, or another crime against the HTTP protocol.

As it stands, mark baker, bill dehOra and Stefan Tilkov are all signing 
on; as is probably Dan Diephouse. It certainly makes sense from the Axis 
team to get on board, but from the RESTy people's perspective, anything 
that tries to seamlessly merge REST with Web Services, to bring the 
unification that IBM talk of in ther Web of Services for the Enterprises 
talk is just going to poison the whole notion of REST in Java, the way 
JAX-WS did for WS.

I would think the overall goal for Apache is to ensure that Java remains 
a first class citizen in the Web, so Roy should be the lead member, with 
the rest of us (I may get in too:) joining on. I may come in as a work 
affiliated person; I will have to discuss it with other people, 
including the RDF folk and our local TAG representative.
