Are customers concerned with Web services management?

Are customers concerned with Web services management which includes security, logging, reporting, caching and XSL transformation? And do you think proxies/intermediaries will be ok at least in the short term? Lastly, what do you feel is going to be of the highest priority for enterprises and Web services today?
All of the things you mentioned are a concern, most of which we've not thought out yet in terms of Web services. This seems to be the case with most new technology standards that come along. There are a few start-ups that are looking to address these issues, as well as the larger players looking to provide solutions. Time will tell.

Proxies should be okay.

The highest priority for enterprises and Web services today is the creation of a solid architecture that matches the enterprise problem domain.
