Jerry,

The discussions occurred a long time ago. Have you looked at the mail 
archives or minutes?

As I recall, we were trying to simplify the spec so we cut down the number 
of MEPs to 4. However, MEPs are an extension point and  it was always 
assumed that others would add new MEPs as required.

Regards,

WSDL 2.0 MEPS

Dear All,

I've been investigating WSDL 2.0 MEPs. 

In the latest Web Services Description Language (WSDL) Version 2.0: 
Additional MEPs (http://www.w3.org/TR/wsdl20-additional-meps) document, I 
see "In-Optional-Out MEP," "Out-Only MEP," "Robust Out-Only MEP," "Out-In 
MEP" and "Out-Optional-In MEP"

But I find references around the Internet to other WSDL 2,0 MEPs such as 
"In-Out" and "In-Only," to name but two. The only reference I can find to 
these other MEPS in any WSDL specification documentation are ones marked 
"Candidate Recommendation."

Does this mean this second set of MEPs are not officially part of the WSDL 
2,0 specification and never where?

If I dig deeply enough into "In-Optional-Out MEP" would I find that it now 
includes what used to be "In-Only" and so "In-Only" was deemed redundant?

Thank you for any information and history!

Cheers,

Jerry
