It is time for WSEE

When I looked at open sourcing my stuff as part of an ESB - I quickly determined that the ESB had so many definitions (many of which didn't contain orchestration) - that the ESB had already crashed.

Modern software infrastructure is based on standards. Standards are grouped into profiles. Profiles are implemented and become products. I don't always like it - but that's the way it works. The ESB 'pick your standard' circus has demonstrated that our customers need more than marketing umbrellas.

We need architectural profiles.

The successor to the ESB MUST be profile based. Think RFC 2119.
