Sanjiva,

For representing Rosettanet PIPs we need solicit-response operations.
e.g. PIP3A4 - is a PurchaseOrderRequest ans PurchaseOrderConfirmation
scenario between the buyer and the seller.

buyer: 
            <operation name="submitPO">
			<output message="PORequest"/>
			<input message="POResponse"/>
		</operation>

and corresponding seller:
		<operation name="processPO">
			<input message="PORequest"/>
			<output message="POResponse"/>
		</operation>

So unless we have some first-class description of an event mechanism in
place, I suggest we leave the "solicit-response" and "output-only" as is in
WSDL1.2.

The WG would like to solicit your comments on whether we should
eliminate WSDL 1.1's "solicit-response" and "output-only" 
operations as we produce WSDL 1.2. 

Here are the two issues from the latest part1 document. Note that
I have posted these together as the decisions obviously need to
be coupled.

  <issue id="issue-remove-solicit-response-operations" status="open">
    <head>Should we remove solicit-response operations?</head>
    Solicit-response operations are not fully defined in WSDL
    1.1. There are multiple interpretations of these in the community:
    event, callback etc.. Also, there is little evidence that anyone
    is actually using them.  We could consider replacing this with
    a first-class description of an event mechanism.

  <issue id="issue-remove-notification-operations" status="open">
    <head>Should we remove notification operations?</head>
    Notification operations are also not fully defined in WSDL
    1.1. There are multiple interpretations of these in the community:
    event, callback etc.. Also, there is little evidence that anyone
    is actually using them. We could consider replacing this with
    a first-class description of an event mechanism.
