Re: input to WSDL, since we're using it in SPARQL?

In the picture on page 2 of
we assumed a feed forward path from bottom-left corner (with SPARQL) to 
top-right corner (with WSDL 2.0)
and now try to work out some tangible test cases...

Kendall, you said you're using WSDL in your protocol design,
right? So this WG should have reviewed WSDL.

I gather you've looked at it; is it OK? I note there are
some heavy-duty-looking objections cited from the SOTD.

At a glance, the features/properties stuff (not sure if
that's actually in the spec or just in the discussion around
the spec) looks like re-inventing RDF, to me. And the
extensibility mechanisms... how are those going to get mapped to RDF?

If it seems worthwhile, I might have a case for getting us into
their critical path based on the link from their charter to the
Semantic Web Activity.

Anybody think I should persue that option?
