"8 December 1999 -- The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)and the Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) Forum (www.wapforum.org) today announced a formal liaison relationship to define next-generation Web specifications that support the full participation of wireless devices on the World Wide Web. The WAP Forum and W3C are working together to develop a common process of producing next-generation, XML-based Web specifications, define testing and implementation processes, and promote these specifications to the industry at large."Perhaps this will ease some fears about the "proprietary" nature of WML and certainly ensures the long term growth and adoption of this standard.
