Issue 367 Proposal

From: John Ibbotson <john_ibbotson@uk.ibm.com>
Date: Mon, 14 Oct 2002 14:30:13 +0100
To: xml-dist-app@w3.org
Message-ID: <OFB07A44E8.842C91AF-ON80256C52.0048BED3@portsmouth.uk.ibm.com>

Issue 367 states that:
There is no dedicated section that would explain what is in scope and
what is explicitly left out of scope of the specification.

Discussion:
This issue was raised after review of the SOAP 1.2 specifications by the
W3C QA WG.
The QA Framework: Specification Guidelines [1] in section 2 proposes the
definition of use cases to understand the primary use and scope of the
specification.
The SOAP 1.2 WG has defined a set of Usage Scenarios [2] as part of its
requirements gathering process.

Proposal:
The scoping of the SOAP 1.2 specification should be made with reference to
the generated Usage Scenarios. The Usage Scenario document should be
referenced from the specification as informative.
