I see you mention enterprises a lot, but I don't see you mention governments / charities / individuals at all. I would imagine especially governments would prefer to use a standard that:
1) doesn't force their citizens into using specific applications with their associated licenses and costs
2) supports extensibility to cater for their needs of integrating different governemnt domains without running the risk of a single vendor changing it whimsically, making all investments in integration moot.

So I'm very interested in your follow-up report indicating what standard you expect governments to adopt, as with the current breeze of paranoia their requests for information from enterprises will only grow in years to come. I'd say that'd be a decisive factor for CIOs to determine what horse to bet on, don't you?
