  after several rounds of talks between Oracle, Microsoft and IBM, the 
latest version of MOAP can be found here: 

The zip file contains all proposed spec changes and the changes include:

WS-EVD: no changes since last time

WS-Eventing/Enum/Frag/Transfer - look for edits done by "Dugv5":
- Only minor wordsmithing/editing to the definitions of the assertions

- there are two MEX docs in the zip file. 
- the v1 version is the one sent to the WG a few weeks ago - no new edits 
were made.
- the v6 version contains all of the edits since v1.  All v1 edits were 
"accepted" so it should be easy to see the diff from v1.
- the edits were done in stages so that's why you'll see several Dugv? 
names.  It wasn't until round 4 of edits that I remembered to change the 
user name. 

The MEX edits include:
- lots of minor editorial tweaks
- there's a new Terminology section.  This was added because it was felt 
that the two roles ('service endpoint' and 'metadata resource') needed to 
be defined and clarified.  People should read/review this carefully.
- the assertion was modified to advertise whether GetMetadata is supported 
- and the Dialect/Content params are now under GetMetadataSupported.
- there's a new section 12 about Bootstrapping.  This section was added to 
pretty much put all of the various pieces of the puzzle together when 
trying to bootstrap the process of talking to an endpoint.
- updated the xsd/wsdl for GetWSDL

Note: I'm planning on moving section 5 before section 4.  This will make 
it so that we define the new mex:Metadata type before we use it.  I didn't 
move it in the doc because then it would show up as modified. 

Outstanding MEX issues for the WG to discuss:
- Example 8-5 - see comments in the doc
- Example 12-1 - see comment in the doc
