Standards for implementing a B2B Web service

What are current industry standard technologies related to implementing a B2B Web service? Where should one start, having good expertise in the Web service arena but very limited in the B2B area?
You will need to keep an eye on several emerging initiatives in the Web Services B2B space: Late last week, IBM and Microsoft published two Web services specifications--WS-Coordination and WS-Transactions--which will together are meant to establish a common business process framework for B2B interaction. You will also want to catch-up on the OASIS Committee Draft of the Business Transaction Protocol, BTP 1.0. There are several documents on their site www.oasis-open.org. These are the most recent attempts at standards for content exchange and transaction support.
