It would be fine with me. But I would like support for context-based
approaches in a massively industry backed standard as WSDL is. 


I guess that to focus the debate, 
I should not have used the term "standard web services".
I am sure there are different views on what are widely industry accepted
"standard web services".
Only for the purpose of this debate, let's focus on SOAP and WSDL.

So change this paragraph:
> Today standard web services don't support:
> a) The concept of stateful service instance
> b) Stateful interaction
> -  Object passing, neither by value nor by reference

Into the following one:
> Widely accepted standards WSDL and SOAP don't support:
> a) The concept of stateful service instance
> b) Stateful interaction
> -  Object passing, neither by value nor by reference

Thank you for the feedback
Regards
Marco

WSDL, and WS-Inspection." [OGSI specs- 3.1 Web Services]
