Paul,

I never claimed that they solved the same problem. It is my understanding 
that
WSCI could be used as a means of providing an external/public 
representation of 
an interface to an EDOC business process. You would have to discuss this 
with the WSCI authors.
I do know that Karsten Riemer of Sun, one of the authors of the WSCI spec, 
was actively engaged
in both the ebXML BP and OMG EDOC efforts and had a specific objective of
aligning the two such that they complemented one another. I believe that 
he had
a similar goal of alignment for WSCI.

My point was that you claimed that the OMG never felt the need for 
"choreography". 
I believe that the EDOC RFP belies your claim.

Cheers,
