The CR Core Specification [1] provides a definition of an EPR, but it

different WSDL descriptions and for some reason this notion and the
resolution has been omitted from the specification. My review on the
other resolutions did not provide any clues as to why this resolution
was not applied. I suspect that this was a simple omission and the
resolution of the wg should be reflected in the current specification. 
This change will not affect the testing or implementations of the
