The "Commentary" is a quote from the "champion" of these issues, at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Apr/att-0044/01-Stum
bo020409.htm.  "I" is William Stumbo.

Some discussion and the resolution is documented later in the minutes.
We accepted the requirement "Should be able to describe messages that
include strongly typed references to both values and services."

Yes, we also were confused about William's recommendation, and so we
didn't follow it.

Hope this helps.
