We are working on a mapping from the U.S. Dept. of Energy
Common Component Architecture (CCA) to WSDL.  CCA components
may have multiple ports of the same type, each representing
a different "instance".

Because WSDL 1.1 stated that multiple ports of the same
portType provide "semantically equivalent behavior" we have
been mapping each CCA port to a separate service.

What is the current thinking for 1.2?  The latest draft
doesn't seem to have any guidance on the semantics of
multiple endpoints of the same interface in one service.
