+ <head>The Meaning of a Service Description</head>
+ 
+ <p>A WSDL 2.0 service description indicates how potential clients are
+ intended to interact with the described service. It represents an
+ assertion that the described service fully implements and conforms to
+ what the WSDL document describes. For example, as further
+ explained in section 6.1.1, if the WSDL document specifies a particular
+ optional extension, the functionality implied by that extension is only
+ optional to the client. But it needs to be supported by the Web service.</p>
+ 
+ <p>A WSDL 2.0 interface describes potential interaction with a service -not
+ required interaction. The declaration of an operation in a WSDL
+ interface is not an assertion that the interaction described by the
+ operation must occur. Rather it is an assertion that if such an
+ interaction is (somehow) initiated, then the declared operation
+ describes how that interaction is intended to occur.</p>
