           Summary: All: Changes to definition of term 'generate'
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: All
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: ram.jeyaraman@microsoft.com
         QAContact: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org


All the WS-RA specs define the term "generate" as follows [1].

I like to suggest two changes as proposed in [2]:

1. Editorial spelling - Change "futher" to "further".
2. The term "MAY NOT" is not generally used. I have suggested a different
phrase.

Both the changes are highlighted within **.

[1] The term "generate" is used in relation to the various faults defined by
this specification to imply that a fault is produced and no futher processing
SHOULD be performed. In these cases the fault SHOULD be transmitted. However,
there might be reasons when a compliant implementation can choose not to
transmit the fault - for example, security concerns - in these situations the
fault MAY NOT be transmitted.

[2] The term "generate" is used in relation to the various faults defined by
this specification to imply that a fault is produced and no *further*
processing SHOULD be performed. In these cases the fault SHOULD be transmitted.
However, there might be reasons when a compliant implementation can choose not
to transmit the fault - for example, security concerns - in these situations
the *service MAY choose not to transmit the fault*.
