If we're going to mention specifications, it would be better (and more even 
handed) to have something like:

"Stateful service interactions such as those involving coordination,
transactions, choreography, authentication/authorization, etc. can be
defined at the software layer above the services themselves. This layer may
be in the top layer application, or it may be a higher level of the service
infrastructure, as in the case of, for example,  WS-Coordination,
WS-Transaction, WS-CAF, WSBPEL, etc."
