           Summary: editorial: Section 5 "Notifications"
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Eventing
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: gilbert.pilz@oracle.com
         QAContact: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org

Section 5 "Notifications" begins with the following text:

"This specification does not constrain notifications because any message MAY be
a notification.

However, if a subscriber wishes to have notifications annotated with unique
SOAP header blocks then it MAY include reference parameters within the
wse:NotifyTo element. These reference parameters will be processed as specified
by [WS-Addressing 1.0 SOAP Binding]."

1.) What does it mean to say that "any message MAY be a notification"? Why is
it necessary to point this out?

2.) The "However, . . ." is incongruous; seems like there was something there
before that got removed.

3.) Why do we need to point out that reference parameters can be used? That's a
given for anything that uses WS-Addressing.

Proposal: substitute both paragraphs with the following:

"Notifications are SOAP messages that are transmitted to the event sink as the
result of a successful Subscribe operation."
