Dear Mr. Reagle,

      Thank you very much for your comment to the Web Services Architecture
Working Group at W3C.
We very much appreciate your time and effort in sending us this comment.
Your
comment has been added to the WSA Issues List [1] and will be resolved
according to the WSA Issues process [2]. In your email [3], there were
several
comments, which have been assigned issue IDs #7-12. Each of these comments
has been scheduled to be addressed individually.


      Concerning your comment that the words " encourage", "promote",
"provide", and "support" are used rather loosely in the document, and are
often treated as synonyms even though they are not in fact synonymous: the
editors of the Requirements document concur with this comment, and can only
plead the exigencies of the authoring process, during which the document
may pass through many individual hands. We will attempt to regularize this
language prior to the next publication of the document. Your proposed
language, to wit using the phrase " will not preclude" in place of the
other phrases above is a good one, and will probably be used except in
cases where this does not express the sentiment of the group on the issue.

      Also, in regard to your comment on non-repudiation; the Working Group
does not intend to require particular algorithms for non-repudiation.
However,
a definition of the term does appear in the Web Services glossary document.

      Again, thanks for your comment.
