I also presented http://www.slideshare.net/cmlh/cvss from 2006 and as part
of this research considered the published minutes of the FIRST SIG
conference calls during the development of CVSSv2.

As I have stated previously, the issues identified within
http://www.slideshare.net/cmlh/cvss are being addressed by the FIRST

I include CWRAF as a recommendation in the Executive Brief since I believe
the risk management function of the business is better at measuring their
residual risk when acting as the external independent auditor.

Also, you may still be able to locate CVE(s) of the published API(s) since
developer tends to reuse API(s) in the development of multiple web
applications.  Hence, it may still possible to quote the CVSS Base Score in
the deliverable as part of encouraging the business to leverage CWRAF.
