RE: straw-man agenda for WS-A/TAG Joint Meeting

Thanks to both Paul Downey and Mark Nottingham for the rapid responses.
I'd ask other TAG members to weigh in if they have any concerns as to how
I've directed the suggested WS-A/TAG agenda.

Understood.  I mentioned metadata only because in following the WS-A list,
there seems to be some subtlety in distinguishing the pieces of an End
Point Reference that can be used to identify or select something vs. the
pieces that are purely informative.  For example, can metadata drive
message routing, or indirectly cause the EPR to designate sub-resources?
I'm guessing that the TAG is most concerned with issues relating to
identity and use of URIs vs other info in an EPR, and rightly or wrongly I
intuited that an introduction to your notions of metadata and parameters
would be essential.   I'd use your 10 mins or so to introduce whatever you
think most helpful as background for understanding identity- and
addressing-related issues.
