About Web Services Choreography Description Language: Primer
W3C Working Draft 19 June 2006

The overview is still too hardcore. It would be better for the reader  
that the first sections about the technology are understandable by  
almost any adults. Steve Ross-Talbot introduced Choregraphy in the  
past with a Jazz band, It was an excellent idea. It was clear and  
simple, and was giving the main structure of the technology. After  
this metaphor it will be a lot easier to guide the reader to the  
technology itself.

The introduction of the specification itself is clearer than the  
start of the Primer.

There is a problem.
Please, make the beginning of the Primer really understandable by  
anyone. A way maybe to achieve this is to think about your wife,  
husband, child and explain the technology. Then gradually, move to  
something more complex.

It is the opportunity to explain what were the problems, what the  
technology will solve and how, to put that in a narrative context, etc.
