           Summary: editorial: what is an "explicit request for metadata"?
           Product: WS-Resource Access
           Version: PR
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: MetadataExchange
        AssignedTo: public-ws-resource-access-notifications@w3.org
        ReportedBy: gilbert.pilz@oracle.com

Section 2.2 "Example" contains the following text right before Example 2-3:

"While the WS-Policy of the Web service endpoint could be retrieved using a
WS-Transfer Get request directed to the endpoint identified by the
mex:MetadataReference element in lines 74-78 of Example 2-2, some endpoints MAY
choose to support explicit request for metadata."

One has to presume that an "explicit request for metadata" involves the use of
the GetMetadata operation, but the spec doesn't come right out and say that.

Proposal:

"While the WS-Policy of the Web service endpoint could be retrieved using a
WS-Transfer Get request directed to the endpoint identified by the
mex:MetadataReference element in lines 74-78 of Example 2-2, some endpoints MAY
support explicit requests for metadata via the GetMetadata operation."
