Regarding...
[[
8.1 Document Conformance
An element information item whose namespace name is
"http://www.w3.org/2004/08/wsdl" and whose local part is definitions
conforms to this specification if it conforms to the XML Schema for that
element as defined by this specification family and additionally adheres
to all the constraints contained in this specification.

the section heading suggests I'm going to find a definition
of "WSDL document" but it's not there.

My WG is making a WSDL thingy for a protocol... you know...
A WSDL thingamabob... a WSDL whatsit...

What is the term for a WSDL thingy/whatsit?


p.s. I realize this is past the 4 October 2004 due date
for comments, but it's been more than 3 months since
the Aug 2004 publication, so you guys are late too. ;-)

p.p.s. I thought I saw a "define your terms" bit in SpecGL,
but I don't see it. The closest I see is
"1.1 Define the specification's conformance model in the conformance
clause."

hmm... can't find a TOC entry for that particular box.
