Let's Dump BPEL and use JavaScript!!!!

HOLY SHIT! O'Toole at Cape Clear thinks we should dump BPEL4WS and use JavaScript instead:

"I asked O'Toole if he expected Cape Clear's customers to proceed blindly with developing Web services that are devoid of any notion of orchestration or transactional state. O'Toole claimed that complicated protocols like the Business Process Execution Language for Web services (BPEL4WS) or the Web services Choreography Interface (WSCI) are extra baggage and that any functionality that those specifications are designed to handle is easily covered by something found in virtually every system: JavaScript (also known as ECMAScript). "


He goes on to say that application servers can go as well. I get the feeling that anything that isn't in his companies product portfolio (yet) isn't worth the while.... very sad.
