Both sets of changes look good to me and are now checked in - good 
catches!

thanks

Another minor editorial item to WS-Eventing:
 
References section includes WSDL 1.1 as a non-normative material; this 
should be instead listed in the Normative references section as in the 
other WS-RA specs.

One comment:
 
  2) 3 of the 7 specs have the 'Composable Architecture' section.  And 
there are two variants of it. 
Mex: 
The Web services specifications (WS-*) are designed to be composed with 
each other to provide a rich set of tools for the Web services 
environment. This specification specifically relies on other Web services 
specifications to provide secure, reliable, and/or transacted message 
delivery and to express Web service metadata. 

Eventing/EVD: 
By using the XML, SOAP [SOAP11], [SOAP12], and WSDL [WSDL11] extensibility 
models, the Web service specifications (WS-*) are designed to be composed 
with each other to provide a rich set of tools to provide security in the 
Web services environment. This specification specifically relies on other 
Web service specifications to provide secure, reliable, and/or transacted 
message delivery and to express Web service and client policy. 
(But evd doesn't include the last sentence since it doesn't define any 
operations). 

I think we either need to remove this section from Mex, Eventing and EVD, 
or pick one variant and add it to the other 4 specs.  I have a preference 
for adding the Eventing/EVD variant to the other 4 specs. 
 
Using Eventing/EVD variant seems fine. I like to suggest an editorial 
change to the description as follows.

All, 
  I noticed some inconsistencies between the specs. 

1) the ordering of the sections in "Terminology and Notation" differed, so 
made them all align with this order: 
Terminology and Notation 
   2.1 Notational Conventions 
   2.2 Considerations on the Use of Extensibility Points 
   2.4 Terminology 
   2.3 Compliance 
   2.5 XML Namespaces 
Note: not all specs have all sections. 

2) 3 of the 7 specs have the 'Composable Architecture' section.  And there 
are two variants of it. 
Mex: 
The Web services specifications (WS-*) are designed to be composed with 
each other to provide a rich set of tools for the Web services 
environment. This specification specifically relies on other Web services 
specifications to provide secure, reliable, and/or transacted message

or pick one variant and add it to the other 4 specs.  I have a preference 
for adding the Eventing/EVD variant to the other 4 specs.   

3) in some specs we say: 
        A non-normative copy of the XML schema is listed below for 
convenience. 
in others we say: 
        A non-normative copy of the XML Schema description is listed below 
for convenience. 
I'd like to change it to match the first one, "XML schema" instead of "XML 
Schema description", in all specs. 

Any objection to me doing edits #2 and #3 as editorial changes? 

thanks
-Doug
