Hi Jacek,

thanks for you explanation!

What do you mean by "resolving the URI"? Would that mean that I need to 
register all existing mapping URIs and map them to a tuple 
(mapping_language, mapping_definition) in my SA-WSDL processor (i.e. a 
local mapping registry)?

I personally would prefer to define this tuple directly in the SA-WSDL 
liftingSchema attribute, since file type guessing is not as beautiful as 
direct identification, isn't it? ;)

What do you think about adding a separate attribute for identifying the 
mapping language or to merge both information into one URI?

I'm involved in FP6's SUPER. We're working on BPEL4SWS which enhances 
BPEL with support for SWS. Since we need to preserve backward 
compatibility, BPEL4SWS must understand data in both representations, 
XML and WSML - therefore, process model interfaces are going to be 
described using SA-WSDL with mapping hints so that the SA-WSDL 
interpreter is able to transform data on demand between both
