Considering that 1) we are focusing on the "wire format" only; 2) the
word "object" was considered out of scope (DR019), I propose we find a
better wording for:
    "program or object and procedure or method"

Noah suggested adding "service" to this list. I think we are looking
for a word that captures the notion of an end point/port capable of
executing a piece of code (script, method, procedure, database query,
whatever).

Original text:
              The XML Protocol will contain a convention for
              representing calls and replies between RPC (Remote
              Procedure Call) applications. The conventions will
              include the following:
                1.Unique specification of the program or object and
                   procedure or method to be called based on URI
                   syntax.
                2.The ability to specify the parameters to a call in a

                   request message and the results of a call in a
reply
                   messages.
                3.Provisions for specifying errors in a reply
                   message.

              Where possible, an attempt will be made to leverage
              any related work done by the IETF. .
