Ram, 

Agreed, in 2.1.2 we are refering to documents so they should be called "descriptions". 

Jonathan, let's accept this as editorial. OK?

Hi Arthur, 
  
Thanks a lot for the explanation. You are absolutely right. 
This actually renders the comment against the snippet in section 4.2.1 invalid. 

Correct me if I am wrong. I assume that the edition is pretty minor then - Just the snippet in section 2.1.2 [as I quoted earlier] cd be edited to refer to "descriptions" rather than definitions. [since it makes the statement that wsdl 2.0 definitions are represented as "description" element information items.]. 
  
Regards! 
Ram

Ram, 

Thx for the comment. The document as a whole is a description, which is why the root element is <description>. However, a case could be made for regarding each nested element, e.g. <interface>, <binding>, <service>, as the definition of a component. So a description is a collection of definitions. What do you think?

Hi, 
 
I suggest a minor editorial change to the Part 1 [Core Language] regarding the usage of  the terms "WSDL 2.0 definitions" and "WSDL 2.0 descriptions". 
Quoting snippet from Section 2.1.2  [WSDL 2.0 definitions are represented in XML by one or more WSDL 2.0 Information Sets (Infosets), that is one or more description element information items] 
Quoting snippet from Section 4.2.1 [ Its actual value indicates that the containing WSDL 2.0 document MAY contain qualified references to WSDL 2.0 definitions in that namespace ] 
These could be changed to WSDL 2.0 "descriptions" from "definitions" - ensures consistent terminology.
