Mark - 

Could you possibly clarify this by giving an example of a stateful

examples from Sateesh and Jeff are all statefull services, not interactions,
and are OK?

Services can be stateful, but the interactions with them should not. You're
talking about the former, and I (and I believe the reqts doc) are talking
about the latter.  They are *very* different things.
