FW: new section

Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
as a Last Call comment LC362 [1].  The WG accepted your proposal


As we plan to go to CR shortly, if we don't hear from you within 10
days, we will assume this satisfies your concern.

Thx. I corrected that typo. 

I have another question. In Part 1 we refer to the fault propagation
rulesets (FPR) by names like "message-triggers-fault" but these names
are not used in Part 2, i.e. Part 2 just says "Message Triggers Fault".
Also, FPRs are an extension point. Should we introduce IRIs for the
FPRs? These IRIs wouldn't appear in any WSDL 2.0 document. However, it
seems consistent to use IRIs for them since we do this for other
extension points. The MEP templates have a slot [fault ruleset
reference] which would be used to specify the IRI for the FPR. The
obvious choices for the IRIs are: 


These would tie in better with the names we use in Part 1. 

Also, from an editorial point of view, it seems a little odd to refer to
these FPRs in Part 1 since they are defined in Part 2. This does make
Part 1 more self contained. An alternate organisation would be to move
all the constraints related to the specific FPRs into Part 2 where they
are defined. This would have the added benefit of simplifying the XML
mapping rules, i.e. we would not mention the constraints in the XML
mapping section. We would only mention them in Part 2 and just in terms
of the component model. 

To summarize: Part 1 should not refer to specific fault propagation
rulesets. This information should only be in Part 2 where the fault
propagation ruleset is defined. Part 1 should talk about generic fault
propagation rulesets and message exchange patterns. The benefit is that
Part 1 is simpler and the spec overall is more modular. 

FYI, I've added the Z Notation for MEPs.[1]

new section




Responding to Arthur's request for feedback on the new section on MEPs
in part 1:

Paragraph two, last sentence contains the word "place" which should be

Paragraph three makes reference to each of the Fault Propagation
rulesets: should these rulesets be linked to here where they are

Otherwise, I'm fairly comfortable with this explication.  It's a bit
odd to see this information presented in a different, summary fashion,
but the summary seems reasonably accurate.
