I would be happy to do that but am not sure how much time I might be able to
devote to it.  It would be great if somebody else can lend me a hand there.

Thanks,

Requirements)

Here are my two cents, and attempt to focus this thread into concrete
action.

As pointed out, orchestration is clearly outside the scope of our
charter.  Making sure the WS description language has adequate hooks or
extensibility to enable composition and orchestration is in scope.

At this stage, we are collecting requirements, use cases, and issues
against WSDL 1.1.  Analysis of WSCL and orchestration needs can inform
each of those efforts.  I'd encourage anyone somewhat familiar with WSCL
and orchestration in general to analyze the requirements and use cases
and provide comments and corrections.  More particular comments or
design ideas can be tracked as issues.  Do I have volunteers for this
task?

PS - switching to the public list, since that's where this thread really
belongs, and all the information is already public.
