In the draft of the Requirements doc at
we still have some goals and CSF's with a "D-" in
front of them.  I took an action item to try to
find champions who would look up the discussions
on these and try to guide us to a definite resolution.
You may find that they were resolved, and the
resolution had not made it into the document.  

It looks like there are 4 goals with draft status, and
three of those have CSF's with draft status associated
with them: D-AC001, D-AC016, D-AC017, and D-AC018.
Also, AC006 is agreed on, but some of its CSFs are 
still in draft status.

It would be nice to have volunteers to take these
on.  I would expect it to take about one hour for each
to dig through the archives, look at the votes and
comments, and propose a sensible resolution.

D-AC001 provides a complete reference framework that encourages the
development of interoperable software products from multiple vendors and
provides a defensible basis for conformance and interoperability test

D-AC001.1 - Encourage the development of interoperable software products.

D-AC001.1.1 - Ensure that no individual implementor is favored over others.

D-AC001.1.2 - Identify all interfaces and messaging protocols within the
architecture in a standardized way.

D-AC001.2 -Ensures that the development of standards-based technologies
identify conformance in such a way that testing software can be

draft status]

D-AC017 provides guidance for the development of the Web services
infrastructure needed to implement common business functions in a
standards-based environment.

D-AR017.1 The Web services Architecture must support common business
functions, to the extent that those functions are defined in similar
methodologies such as EDI.

D-AR017.2 The Web services Architecture must support reliable messaging and

D-AR017.3 The Web services Architecture must support unique message IDs and
message sequencing.

D-AR017.4 The Web services Architecture must support reliable transaction
