I thought you'd like to see a copy of a slide we use at Microsoft for tracking the adoption of WS-* specifications in the industry, as it gives a good summary of WS-* product adoption status.
As you can see, WS-* adoption is progressing well, with a wide range of companies shipping products across the board.
There are also some clear patterns of strong momentum in several key "niches" too - including devices, management and security.
BTW, let me know if the data about your company is out of date, and I'll update it.

Can you provide a high-res pic :P
It doesn't nearly show all the WS-* standards and the ones that are shown, MS is conveniently scoring well in...
I'd be interested to hear which WS-* standards you think are "missing" from this list.
Jorgen, Could you explain the relationship between "released product" and "public interop"? Does a "public interop" icon imply that the feature is in a "released product"? Or could a feature have been tested in an interop fest even though it is not yet included in a shipping product? Also, I assume that a "released product" icon implies that the feature has NOT yet passed a "public interop" test. Finally, I assume that most of the "public interop" tests have only been "unit tests" of one SOAP header spec at a time. How much "integration" testing of multiple SOAP headers has been done (eg, WS-Trust & WS-SecureConv & WS-RM)? Thanks.
