Could we resolve some of these problems by allowing for a set of variables 
at the outer scope of any OWL-S/SWSL process... i.e. we don't try to bury 
all this down in the details of specific conditions, etc.  A list of 
variables in the outer scope of the whole OWL-S process (where'er a 
compound or primitive one) would appear to be a simple mechanism that is 
more familiar to those of us used to dealing with planning system operators
