OK, I see your point and have no problem with it.  I personally think that
main point of a web service choreography is to *describe* it, and the
execution is an "implementation detail" for the purposes of this WG.
Nevertheless, I agree that the execution could be done RESTfully and
[putting on my Software AG hat] it is a very good idea to build
choreographed services using a scalable/reliable XML repository with an HTTP
interface :-)
