All,

<RemovesHat>

Based on the discussion during yesterday's f2f, I offer
a proposal for a revised Vision section for the Requirements
document that hopefully captures the sense that I got from
the group.

<ProposedText>

Vision

The W3C Web Services Reference Architecture is intended primarily for 
the W3C Web Services Architecture Working Group to analyze,
prioritize and characterize the technologies that are needed to
fully realize an interoperable and extensible realization of the
promise of Web Services. It is also intended for the use of other 
working groups specifying the technologies identified and described in 
the architecture. A secondary target audience for the architecture are 
the developers implementing the specified technologies, and the wider IT 
community that uses these technologies to deploy web services.

</ProposedText>

The bit at the end of the current Vision section should be preserved
somewhere (probably under DAG0005 somewhere as a requirement I would
guess)

The exposition of the reference architecture must, to the greatest 
extent possible, be understandable by an experienced software designer 
or developer: it should use a minimum of specialized jargon, and be 
organized, described and illustrated in such a way to minimize the 
amount of effort required to understand it.

Flame away!

Cheers,

Chris
