WS-Policy Spec published on xmlsoap.org

This is just kind of an FYI -
In order to provide a vendor-neutral place for the publishing of co-author collaborations of Web Services specs, we the co-authors of WS-Policy have placed copies of the September '04 versions of these specs out at http://specs.xmlsoap.org/ws/2004/09/policy/

Xmlsoap.org is where the schemas for SOAP 1.1 and WSDL 1.1 live, so it's already perceived as a "safe" location for published specs/data. The expectation over time is that other WS-* specs will be posted to xmlsoap when it makes sense, but not necessarily all of them. They will also continue to be available on the individual authors' web sites.

I guess it makes it seem less alarming when other specs that are in standards bodies reference these "non-standard" specs.
