HI I won't repeat the arguments, but I fully agree Adrian, Bruce,
Andrea, Daniel etc on how bad for the geospatial community would be to
have such a broad standard overlaping existing WxS services.

We need to improve WxS services and help OGC to evolve them to current
market needs, not throw to the bin years of knowledge and community
driven efforts.
