A WS description allows it to publish the message interactions it is capable
of handling. However, this description alone does not
capture any meta-information associated with the message interaction
definitions. The message interactions are meaningful in a
given business domain, or more precisely, as defined as part of W3C work on
ontology [1].

A Web Service description SHOULD be able to define extensible mechanisms for
capturing meta-information associated with a message.

Some of the examples of the meta-information are:

1. Some messages of a WS may require authentication information.

2. Some messages of a WS may deal with in a particular Business Domain. For
instance, submitPO, may be an overloaded
message where one such message primarily deals with RosettaNet.

3. QoS parameters

Comments are welcome.
