Hugo,

	Good. 

	May I suggest that this document be the reference which contains
THE collection of all MEPs required for web services (and SOAP message
based) interactions ? Currently the "defined message exchange patterns"
contain only the interactions defined in a W3C specification.

	A related question : Should we have a registration process for
MEPs ? Then all specifications - W3C/OASIS et al - can uniformly and
unambiguously refer to MEPs. 

cheers

|  Subject: Message exchange patterns document
|  
|  
|  
|  As per my action item, I have started a document about message
|  exchange patterns whose goals are (from the abstract):
|  
|       * explain how to document a MEP.
|       * list the MEPs developed within the Web Services Activity.
|       * eliminate discrepancies.
|  
|  The document is available at:
|  
	     http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/cg/2/07/meps.html

Message exchange patterns have a role in SOAP, WSDL, and are likely to
come to play in other places (e.g. conversation, choreography).

I think that the XML Protocol Working Group and the Web Services
Description Working Group should come in agreement about using a same
concept and way to describe MEPs, and that the Web Services
Architecture Working Group should look into generalizing MEPs.

Regards,

Hugo
