Jean-Jacques,

You sent an email[1] notifying the Web Services Architecture Working
Group that the definition of "Web service" was out of sync in the
different drafts, which is listed as issue 19[2].

The current Working Drafts have been modified to all use the same
definition, which should solve the issue:

| A Web service is a software system identified by a URI [RFC 2396],
| whose public interfaces and bindings are defined and described using
| XML. Its definition can be discovered by other software systems. These
| systems may then interact with the Web service in a manner prescribed
| by its definition, using XML based messages conveyed by Internet
| protocols.

Please let us know if you are not satisfied with this resolution.

Thank you.
