This CSF is aimed at capturing the technical goal wrt web services and 
semantics; it is neutral as to technology adopted ;-)

The impact on architecture is probably less than on the description WG. 
However, there is more to come ...

D-AC022 It should be possible for a web service to characterize itself 
sufficiently for a web services client to make an automatic judgement 
about the semantics of the web service.
	D-AC022.1 The elements referred to in a web service description 
should be describable in a standard way; preferably in a way that is 
consistent with W3C OWL
	D-AC022.2 Any operations implied by activation of the web service 
should be describable in a standard way -- using standard references to 
ontological concepts as appropriate
	D-AC022.3 Any preconditions and constraints on the use of the web 
service should be describable in standard way.
