This is a useful part of the discussion, apart from the title. Since it describes a situation which has existed for many years, it doesn't justify intervention anywhere, but as a community of communities we neet to take its lessons on board and steer away from the problem over the coming years. Can I say "scorecard" again?
"The point is that that kind of thing simply cannot be built if you start with large formal specifications and fixed-price contracts and change-control procedures and so on. So if your enterprise wants the sort of outcomes we’re seeing on the Web (and a lot more should), you’re going to have to adopt some of the cultures and technologies that got them built." -- I completely agree with Tim here. If you've heard my Adoption-Led keynote you've heard me say this, and Tim's more general point is spot on. Now expect whines from those who gave us WS-\* instead of true "small pieces loosely joined"...
