hi, Daniel,

Two comments:

1.
Thanks for the rewording of D-AG0018.  It does read better now.  However,
I'd like to have one little change, from:

"provide a standard set of metrics for measuring aspects of Web Services
such as reliability, quality of service, and performance, and to define a
standard means of instrumentation for measurement and management of these
aspects of Web Services."

to 

"provide a standard set of metrics for measuring aspects of Web Services
such as reliability, quality of service, and performance, and to define a
standard means of measurement of these metrics and instrumentation for
management of Web Services."

This is because the management of Web Services may address different aspects
than the measurement does.
The first defintion may imply that they adress the same set of aspects.
Basically, measurement is read-only while the management can potentially
change the internal state of Web Services.

2.
Can we remove the application from the Web Services definition for reasons
discussed before?

Subject: March 26 2002 version of requirements draft


Greetings,

	I've uploaded the latest version of the editor's draft of the
requirements to:
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/arch/2/wd-wsawg-reqs-03262002.html

	The XML version is located at:
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/arch/2/wd-wsawg-reqs-03262002.xml

	This version is still incomplete. In particular, the current version
does not incorporate the work that has been done up to this point in
developing the CSFs for each of the goals done by the champions for each
goal. The reason for this is that the information is currently not in a
state that allows the editors to properly do justice to this material. After
struggling with this issue for a few days, I've decided that it would be
better to allow some additional time for the champions to summarize their
final positions prior to the pre-face2face version of the document.
Basically, there is a lot of confusion among the many threads on this issue.

	I'd like to ask the champions of each thread to post a summary of
their goal wording, CSFs, and requirements to the list by Friday March 29.
Please put "Summary: D-Gnnnn" in the subject line of the email. Include the
final wording for each goal, and whatever additional material you have ready
for the face2face meeting. Thanks!

	Known issues for this version:
* termdefs are incomplete
* reference citations are inconsistent
* chapter 2 is incomplete

	There will be a new version posted one week from today, on April 1.
This will be the last published version prior to the face2face meeting. 


	Please be patient with your editors as they struggle with a large
and sometimes confusing mass of material! Champions, please summarize!

Regards,

D-
