One issue here for me is how this maps into the SOAP/WSDL layer (if 
there is one). The simple way to implement login is with a request/reply 
MEP. Then there are two messages, as you suggest, but it is one 
operation, in the WSDL sense of the term. Maybe it should be possible to 
include such a MEP in the choreography without explicitly showing the 
two messages - it is a logical unit.
<DB>I like this idea in principle, however some MEPs consist of a
request/response whilst others consist of a single message. I can't easily
think of how you could easily combine these different types of MEPs into a
single choreography definition.</DB>

Generally, I am concerned about duplicating WSDL layer information into 
the choreography layer. When you have duplication you also have the 
possibility for the information to get out of sync.
<DB>I agree with this idea also, however I am not sure how you would easily
combine them as described earlier.</DB>

Also re failure: if you are using SOAP, the WSDL tells you if a fault 
condition is possible. If this fault leads to a state transition it may 
need to be handled explicitly in the choreography. 
<DB>I agee it will need separate handling.</DB>
But perhaps there 
should be a default behavior (termination of the choreography?). Also 
something like the BPEL concept of fault handlers may be necessary. 
There is no equivalent concept in BurdettML, AFAIK.
<DB>Default fault handlers are a good idea except that you would need one
for each role</DB>
