           Summary: Enum: server behavior after end of enumeration context
                    reached
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: FPWD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Enumeration
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: geoffbu@microsoft.com

Section 3 states
Once the last element in a sequence has been returned, or the enumeration
context has expired, the enumeration context is considered invalid and the
result of subsequent operations referencing that context is undefined.

Section 3.2 (request) states
If the enumeration context is not valid, either because it has been replaced in
the response to another Pull request, or because it has completed
(EndOfSequence has been returned in a Pull response), or because it has been
Released, or because it has expired, or because the data source has had to
invalidate the context, then the data source SHOULD fail the request, and MAY
generate the following fault

Section 3.2 (response) states
Additionally, once this element is returned in a Pull response message,
subsequent Pull requests using that enumeration context SHOULD generate a
wsen:InvalidEnumerationContext fault message; in any case, they MUST NOT return
a valid PullResponse.

This appears to be inconsistent as section 3 states that it is “undefined”, the
first part of section 3.2 states that the server “SHOULD” fail and “MAY” return
a particular fault, later section 3.2 states that the server “SHOULD” return
this fault and “MUST NOT” return a valid PullResponse.  

Proposal:
section 3.2 (response) be changed to: “MAY generate a
wsen:InvalidEnumerationContext message”, and delete the “in any case, they MUST
NOT return a valid PullResponse”.
