Hi Asir

The example only returns one WSDL (which happens to have some others 
imported within it) so we can tell (implicitly) that that's the root and 
so no semantics are required.  Sorry if I have not understood your 
question?

Best regards
Katy

Are there any semantics associated with a WSDL returned by 
http://<endpoint>?WSDL? For instance, what is the semantics associated 
with a WSDL that is returned by such a Get request and contains a few 
import statements (see below)?

<definitions name="StockQuote" 
   targetNamespace="http://example.com/stockquote/definitions"
   xmlns="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/">

 <import namespace="http://example.com/stockquote/definitions"
    location="http://example.com/stockquote/definitions1.wsdl"/>

 <import namespace="http://example.com/stockquote/definitions"
    location="http://example.com/stockquote/definitions2.wsdl"/>

</definitions>

           Summary: WS-Mex: Distinguishing the 'main' metadata
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MetadataExchange
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org

A GetMetadata request may return multiple documents all of the same 
dialect. 
How does the client know which of these documents is the 'root' document?

For example (this is a side note mentioned in 7912):
When multiple WSDL documents* are returned from GetMetadata, how do we
distinguish the 'real' one - i.e. the one that would be returned from HTTP 
GET
targeted at <endpoint>?WSDL ? 

Note that there might be >1 root documents - for instance, in the case of 
one
WSDL for soap 1.1 and one for SOAP 1.2.

*Multiple WSDL documents may be returned if operations are implicitly 
defined
(via policy) or if WSDL documents are imported.

Proposal:
--------
Here is a starting proposal:

Add an attribute @root to the dialect in order to indicate that the 
metadata
section is a 'root' one.  Define the meaning of the 'root' document for 
each
dialect. 

  <mex:MetadataSection Dialect='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/
                       Identifier='http://services.example.org/stockquote'
                       Root=true>
  ...
  </mex:MetadataSection>
  <mex:MetadataSection Dialect='http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/
                       Identifier='http://www.w3.org/2009/09/ws-tra'
                       Root=false>
  ...
  </mex:MetadataSection>
