           Summary: Metadata returnrd by WS-Transfer GET unclear
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: FPWD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MetadataExchange
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: ashok.malhotra@oracle.com

Section 6.1 of WS-MEX says ...

"... The metadata associated with a service endpoint may be available as
multiple metadata resources. As a result, the metadata returned by the Get
request to a metadata resource's endpoint may be limited to a particular
metadata type (@Dialect) and identifier (@Identifier).

The representation of a metadata resource MAY be a mex:Metadata element or any
other document format (e.g. [XML Schema: Structures], [XML Schema: Datatypes],
[WSDL 1.1], [WS-Policy]) for which a mex:MetadataSection/@Dialect has been
defined."

I don't understand what this says.  Why don't we say, instead "A WS-Transfer
GET on a EPR returns the metadata element (child) of the EPR?"
