WS-Notification approved by OASIS

And in unrelated news, OASIS members have approved WS-Notification v1.3

OASIS, the international standards consortium, today announced that its members have approved WS-Notification version 1.3 as an OASIS Standard, a status that signifies the highest level of ratification. WS-Notification defines a pattern-based approach for disseminating information amongst Web services.
