    Here's my attempt to capture today's discussion centering around adding 
a description of the business drivers for developing a choreography spec.

This goes right before Section 1.1 - Inputs


  WSDL has proved very useful for describing a single service. Currently 
complex natural language describing the obligations of the participants 
detailing how to use a service (sequencing, state management, etc.) have to 
accompany a WSDL description. The next step is to partially replace these 
somewhat imprecise instructions with precise language. This will simplify 
the daunting task companies now face when trying to use web services to 
integrate their business processes. In a B2B context such a specification 
could reduce the cost of integrating with new trading partners and 
responding to changes in existing interfaces. In a standards context it 
will allow the development of specifications of choreographies  in 
sufficient detail to enable interoperable implementations.
