                      for eliminating message, the discussion goes to

	    2002-11-12: Marsh to contact the XMLP WG (and later the wider

[.1] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Nov/0085.html

	ACTION: Jonathan to find material proposing restricting services to a single portType
	<plh-fr> MEP call notes: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Dec/0070.html
	JM: no conclusion yet on which MEP's require bindings
	JM: summarized the con call about MEP's
	Dale: Does Service means server?
	<jeffsch> Here are notes from the prior meeting where we wrestled with how many port types a service will implement
	<jeffsch> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2002Oct/0028.html
	JM: Do we differentiate Service being Client or Server Service
	Sanjiva: there is no need to make that distinction.
	Dale: From interface description point of view. who gets to announce the description?
	gudge: WSDL is written from point of view of whoever publishes it.
	JM: Do we need two kinds of MEP's one at abstract level and one at binding level?
	JM: general agreement is to define MEP's at abstract level.
	jack: two options 1. abstract MEP's that are more extensible
		2. stick with four and decompose others.
	jack: abstract MEP for req/res and soap MEP that says it implements that.
	youenn: reuse the soap MEP work and publish our own work rather than telling XMLP group to define \
		  abstract MEP's independent of SOAP
	sanjiva: soap is one of the way we define for communication.
	<jeffsch> When you say 'state machine', do you mean the sequence and cardinality of messages?
	glen: soap MEP's just describe just how to move soap messages across.
	<jjm> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-arch/2002Nov/0136.html
	jjm: WS-Arch is looking to take some of the SOAP concepts and making them into abstract.
	JM: taking two input and output operations should we start writing SOAP MEP's
	JM: does anybody disagree that we need to create or find MEP specification for input/output or inverse
	ACTION: JM to find volunteers for writing MEP's for input/output
		  and output/input
	jeffsch: I'm not giving up my idea that we don't provide other operation types than the four we have
	glen: i think we need both concrete proposals and also examples.
	youenn: i would like to normative request/response and its reverse.
	ACTION: will try to produce MEP proposals for request/response, Input, solicit/response
	JM: define request/response at abstract level and bind it to SOAP req/res or response MEP in binding
	ACTION: jack to write up text on SOAP response MEP after Don send his proposal for requrest/response MEP
