+1 to what Dave said.  The "state of the art" is clearly private agreement.
We would like to go beyond that, and should encourage work in this area, but
it can't be a MUST requirement.

As much as I would like to strive for the goal, I think it is unrealistic
and will prevent the use of
web services for existing services that do rely upon private agreement.
 
In summary, I would find this easier to support if:
    1) it described or defered to another project the foundation semantics
used to achive this goal?
    2) it was reworded to indicate that a ws may be characterized -- instead
of an obligation to characterize.

D-AC026.2.3 It must be possible to characterize a service using purely
publicly observable semantics. I.e., the semantic description of a web
service should not rely on private agreements or on unobservable
characteristics of services and agents.
