What flurry of acknowledgements?  There has been no such thing.

If the GETF task force is to be believed, in 2 weeks or so, SOAP 1.2 will be
a better citizen in the web.  2 weeks of effort is hardly sufficient to
justify such a grandiose claim as "web services have little to do with the

And further, SOAP 1.2 becoming a better citizen hardly means that semantic
web/web service coupling is new light or new information.

There is no jurisprudence there.  It is not surprising that a "Web Service
Description", where a web service is a web resource, should have a "resource
description" in RDF.  But that doesn't apply to the overall WSA.

But I think I saw you saying you could live with wording of "expressible
in", so I think we can move on.  I mostly wanted to dispute the 2 assertions
you made wrt web services/web and jurisprudence.
