Perhaps, but "Hailstorm" per se was never the real threat.
It's the technology behind it.  That technology remains,
even though the service doesn't.  MS is looking to repackage
the technology and resell it to others to turn into services.

So, there is still the possibility that they will establish a
de facto proprietry standard for Web services technologies
and starve everyone else out.  This still needs to be fought.
