Hey, folks,

Following up from the action item at the face to face, I would like to 
solicit text for motivations/use cases for participants in the MEP 
beauty contest.

Contestants should provide text suitable for inclusion in the MEP 
descriptions, which will go into a subsection called "motivation" or 
possibly "usage".  A preliminary (quickly-written) sample is provided 
below; other formats will be accepted.  The editors will not be 
guaranteeing that the pristine purity and clarity of submitted text 
will be reflected into the document in CVS as written (translation: 
editors will use the submitted text as a foundation, but may change 
things out of all recognition).

Submissions should use the current abstract numbering to identify the 
MEP.

MEP7:
This Message Exchange Pattern is commonly encountered in messaging 
systems, where it might be referred to as "multicast solicit/response". 
  The classic multicast discovery mechanism is an example: the service 
broadcasts or multicasts a message to all listeners, asking who 
provides capability X; each listener may respond (in which case the 
service may detect and return a fault), return a fault, or do nothing.  
The content model shorthand is OUT, IN*, with the proviso that any 
message may trigger a fault.

Amy!
