While adding the text for issues 7586, 7588 and 7828 I noticed that we 
saved a lot of space in wsenum and wseventing by not repeating the 
definition of the children elements when we define the Renew operation - 
we just point people back to Susbcribe/Enumerate.  For example, ws-enum 
Renew says:

Components of the outline listed above are additionally constrained as for 
a request to create an enumeration (see 3.1 Enumerate) with the following 
addition(s): 

However, for some reason on the Response side of the Renew operation (for 
both specs) we do mention the GrantedExpires element:

Components of the outline listed above are constrained as for a response 
to an Enumerate request (see 3.1 Enumerate) with the following addition: 
[Body]/wsen:RenewResponse/wsen:GrantedExpires 
If the requested expiration is a duration, then the implied start of that 
duration is the time when the data source starts processing the Renew 
request. 

Notice that  1) we point people back to Enumerate, and 2) the text for 
GrantedExpires doesn't really add anything beyond what Enumerate already 
says for this element.

If people are ok with it, I'd like to just remove this 
extra/semi-duplicate definition of GrantedExpires from Renew for both 
Eventing and Enum - in both cases people will be directed back to the 
Enumerate/Subscribe operation so nothing should be lost and we avoid 
possible inconsistencies in the specs.  Its worth noting that we do this 
for GetStatus in both specs already.

I'll wait a couple of days and if no one objects I'll make the update as 
an editorial tweak.

thanks
-Doug
