After some talks with Ram about this one, we came up with a new proposal 
that should allow the usecase I'm concerned about to work while still 
allowing for the event source to be the one to send out notifications:
- - - - - -
Event Source 
A Web service that accepts requests to create subscriptions. 

Notification 
A one-way message sent to indicate that an event, or events, have 
occurred. Notifications MAY be sent by any endpoint including the event 
source. 
- - - - - - - 

Also, as I was reviewing ws-eventing I noticed some other places where we 
talk about the event source being the one to send notifications - we 
should change those too: 

During that time, notifications are delivered by the event source to the 
requested event sink... 
-- s/by the event source// 

the event source sends only notifications that match the requested filter 
-- change to: only notifications that match the requested filter are sent 
-- actually, we should change "notifications" to "events" too since we 
don't filter notifications, we filter events 

The event source sends notifications until ... 
-- change to: Notifications are sent until... 

This specification defines a method for transmitting notifications from 
the event source to the event sink through the use of the wse:NotifyTo 
element. 
-- s/from the event source// 

I don't think these changes any have normative impact on the spec or 
coding changes.  It just avoid any confusion that they might cause. 

thanks
-Doug
