It will be interesting to see how WSCI relates to BPEL4WS,
WS-Transaction and WS-Coordination.

> Abstract
> The Web Service Choreography Interface (WSCI) is an XML-based 
> interface definition language that describes the flow of 
> messages exchanged by a Web service participating in 
> choreographed interactions with other services.
> WSCI describes the dynamic interface of the Web service 
> participating in a given message exchange by means of reusing 
> the operations defined for a static interface. WSCI works in 
> conjunction with the Web Service Description Language (WSDL), 
> the basis for the W3C Web Services Description Working Group. 
> It can also work with another service definition language 
> that exhibits the same characteristics as WSDL.
> WSCI describes the observable behavior of a Web service. This 
> is expressed in terms of temporal and logical dependencies 
> among the exchanged messages, featuring sequencing rules, 
> correlation, exception handling, and transactions. WSCI also 
> describes the collective message exchange among interacting 
> Web services, thus providing a global, message-oriented view 
> of the interactions.

Section 8.3 (Acknowledgment of a Submission Request) of the W3C Process
Document explains the significance of the Director's acknowledgment, at:


          Publication of a Note by W3C does not imply endorsement
          by W3C, including the W3C Team or Membership.
          The acknowledgment of a Submission request does not
          imply that any action will be taken by W3C. It merely
          records publicly that the Submission request has been
          made by the Submitter. Documents that are part of an
          acknowledged Submission request may not be referred to
          as "work in progress" of the W3C.
