The trouble seems to be within the definition of operations, which in the Web services world tends to be methods or programs, some of which may already exist.  Would this imply a requirement to refactor or retrofit existing programs in order to participate in a Web services environment?

Since this has been the source of a lot of debates, we should address
this question in our document and refer to the TAG finding IMO. This
could go into section 3.1.
