Proposal for issue 1092

Here is the latest proposal for issue 1092:

Update section 1.3 "Goals" to read as follows (changes in bold):

    * Specification Composability. This specification will work 
alongside and/or complement other specifications such as the
WS-Reliability [WSRM], WS-Composite Application Framework (WS-CAF) 
[WSCAF], WS-Security [WSS], Business Process Execution
Language for WS (WS-BPEL) [WSBPEL], ebXML Business Process 
Specification Schema [ebBP], etc.

Update section 1.5 "Relationship with Business Process Languages" to 
read as follows (changes in bold):

A Choreography Description Language is not an "executable business 
process description language" or an implementation language. The role 
of specifying the execution logic of an application will be covered by 
these [XLANG], [WSFL], [WSBPEL], [BPML], [XPDL], [JLS], [C#S] and other 
specifications.

A Choreography Description Language does not depend on a specific 
business process implementation language. Thus, it can
be used to specify truly interoperable, collaborations between any type 
of party regardless of the supporting platform or
programming model used by the implementation of the hosting 
environment. A Choreography Description Language may be couple with 
other computable semantic definitions, such as those specified in the 
OASIS ebBP.

Each party, adhering to a Choreography Description Language 
collaboration representation, could be implemented using
completely different mechanisms such as:

    * Applications, whose implementation is based on executable business 
process languages [XLANG], [WSFL], [WSBPEL], [BPML],
[XPDL]
    * Applications, whose implementation is based on general purpose 
programming languages [JLS], [C#S]
    * Or human controlled software agents

Please provide any feedback you may have on this.

Cheers,

-Charlton.
