Thanks, Daniel, for this draft. It's good to have something specific to comment on. I have a few, which I hope the group will consider:

1. Abstract, 2nd line: "These services provide a standard means of communication among different software applications involved in presenting dynamic context-driven information to the user." I'm not sure the last part of the sentence is essential and/or necessary. As currently phrased, it implies that the purpose of such app-to-app communications is to present something to a user (by which I assume a human is implied). Whether or not Web services have such consequences - and this is just one of the many side-effects - the first part of the sentence is true. I would juts shorten it to the essential: "These services provide a standard means of communication among different software applications."

2. D-AG001-a: I'm not sure what a "defensible basis" is. Defence against whom? Attack by what?

3. D-AG002: I wonder if "modularity" of components, and "granularity" are not two separate goals. The first deals with content, the latter with size - to put it simply.

This document is an editors draft and has no official status. It contains
primarily the initial list of goals from the mailing list, with some
additions and changes as per last week's teleconference and further
discussions online. 

Please read this document and make comments. There is of course a great deal
yet to be done but I believe that this document provides us with a basis on
which we may continue our discussions. Please send all comments to the list.



P.S. I am aware of some basic typographical errors and mistakes in the draft
and will correct them as soon as possible.
