Please comment on the harmonization effort for WSDM and WS-Man that 
seems to have included some work on WS-Notification and WS-Eventing.

This links to a May 2007 document.  In particular, figure 2.1 shows 
Existing Stacks and Reconciled Stacks.

Under the Reconciled stack, it shows WS-EVN over WS-Eventing'.
That paper does not say much else about WS-EVN.

A March 2006 version is at

( http://tinyurl.com/6avt5p )
This paper talks about WS-EventNotification (presumably the same 
thing as WS-EVN in the May 2007 paper).  It seems to play a role in this space.

Where does WS-EventNotification fit into this picture and how does it 
impact the work of this WG?  Is WS-EventNotification needed to 
"compose effectively"?
