RE: Rename <definitions> to <description>

For the record, the WG agreed [1] to change the names as you propose.
We will assume you agree that we have addressed the issue appropriately
unless we hear from you before Oct 13th.

Since WSDL is the Web Services Description Language, it is natural to
make its root element <description>.  A WSDL document describes a Web
service. The document is therefore a description. 

This change would make our names more consistent with XSD, i.e it is XML
Schema language its root element is <schema>. 

The Definitions component should be called the Description component.
