RFC 3234
Middleboxes: Taxonomy and Issues

Intermediaries in the web services architecture probably could include some 
things that would be in RFC 3234, and some other things not in RFC 3234.

There is also an IETF Middlebox Comm WG

These are related works.

I think WSA needs to get crisper language about SOAP intermediaries as they 
relate to service descriptions.

We either need to tell WSDWG that they MUST address R031 [1]  "The WG 
specification(s) SHOULD support SOAP 1.2 intermediaries."

or tell WSCG that this is a gap that needs filling (i.e., how to describe 
SOAP intermediaries).

If we have a way to describe SOAP intermediaries, then WS-Chor may be able 
to address how they fit into a choreography.
