Per my AI [1], here's a first pass at some abstracts for our specs.  I 
really didn't do anything except copy the abstract from each spec - it 
seemed sufficient.

WS-Transfer:
This specification describes a general SOAP-based protocol for accessing 
XML representations of Web service-based resources. 

WS-Eventing:
This specification describes a protocol that allows Web services to 
subscribe to or accept subscriptions for notification messages

WS-EventDescriptions:
This specification describes a mechanism by which an endpoint can 
advertise the structure and contents of the events it might generate. 

WS-MetadataExchange:
This specification defines how metadata associated with a Web service 
endpoint can be represented as resources, how metadata can be embedded in 
endpoint references, how metadata could be retrieved from a metadata 
resource, and how metadata associated with implicit features can be 
advertised. 

WS-SOAPAssertions:
This specification defines two WS-Policy assertions that can be used to 
advertise the requirement to use a certain version of SOAP in message 
exchanges. 

WS-Enumeration:
This specification describes a general SOAP-based protocol for enumerating 
a sequence of XML elements that is suitable for traversing logs, message 
queues, or other linear information models.
