We should certainly avoid releasing lampreys into trout ponds - the 
effects would be
grotesque.

I think the more recent definitions of "web service" and "choreography"
move us closer to being able to solve all this (though of course some 
degree
of fuzziness between "choreography", "orchestration", and "MEP" still
remains). They should make it easier to pin down the nouns to which we 
want to apply
the adjectives "synchronous" and "asynchronous"....
