I don't see how this fits with my comment. Does it have to be in the 
core spec? Produced by this group at this time?

Who's the audience? Who's the in group champion? Who will write test 
cases and software to show conformance? Who will write the specese?

If y'all are interested in something happening, we should move this 
over to www-ws-desc. Personally, I still favor getting a Working Group 
note out, building an experienced community of practice, then rec 
tracking. I generally favor rec tracking this in a separate document.

I note that even on this list, aside from me who has no vested 
interest, there isn't consensus that makring safe operations is even 
needed, much less how it should work.

Cheers,
