That's good, and I support its inclusion, but I wouldn't say that it
replaces mine above because it's more general.  If we agree that trying
to hide application protocol semantics from Web services is one way of
violating your requirement, then I think we should try and capture that
now (before you change your mind 8-).

Of course, this all depends on what the rest of the WG thinks about
this little discussion.  I expect there's some head scratching going
on. 8-)
