Before this list goes into a "what is a [wW]eb [Ss]ervice?" (cf
xml-dev), may I suggest to avoid that term... if possible? Some of us
are involved in Web Services effort and, foreseeing the issue, I careful
pointed to a definition of "Web Service" in the introduction message [1]
to prevent confusion and debate around it. This would also help us
spreading confusion as well about our intent.
