Draft of TAG Submission to W3C Workshop on Web of Services for Enterprise Computing

The TAG resolved at it's F2F in early December that I would apply to 
represent the TAG at the upcoming W3C Workshop on Web of Services for 
Enterprise Computing.  On our telcon of Dec. 19 we discussed [2] a draft 
outline that I'd prepared for a position paper.  I was asked to go ahead 
and prepare such a paper, with the suggestions that the ouline be adapted 
to focus more specifically on use cases, to better label the use cases, 
and especially to make clear that the TAG is coming to the workshop as 
much to listen and learn as to promote any particular technical position. 
On the call of Jan. 2 I committed to circulate a draft of the submission 
today, and a copy is attached.  Note that actual submissions are due on 10 
January, which is approximately 3 or 4 working days from now.

I invite review of this document from the community, but especially from 
the TAG, because it is intended to capture our position.  Please keep in 
mind that this is not a TAG finding, and I don't think it's practical or 
indeed desirable in the few days available to try to refine it to the 
level of quality or consensus that we would associate with a finding.  My 
view is that success for this paper is:  if it reasonably correctly sets 
out issues that will promote useful discussion at the workshop, then it's 
fine.  I have reserved some time to do editing in response to comments, 
but please don't ask for major surgery unless you think it's truly 
important.  The TAG does have a call next Tues, 9 Jan, and I suggest we 
use that to finalize our decision to submit. 

Thank you!
