How whould you represent goals?  OWL-S allows you to express the outputs 
and effects of the service and the type of service.  How do not 
understand what else goals should contain.

Essentially, if a client has the goal of moving to some state  (such as 
owning a book) it expresses this state in the output/effect and produces 
the OWL-S profile (effect: owl(Book)).  Alternatively if the client 
knows that the type of service needed then it can explicitly say that is 
looking for a bookselling service. 

Just a clarification question, what else do you need?

ps: about the mediation/multiple ontologies issues there will be a 
message later.  The two issues (mediation vs goals) are of course 
totally different and should not be confused.
