Fair enough ... We don't want to take sides in the declarative
vs procedural controversy!  On the other hand, I think we 
have a scoping issue here: are we forming a WG to define an
"IDL" for choreography that merely constrains the execution
of a business process, or an actual language that one can 
use to implement it?  That seems to be a fundamental 
requirement issue not a detail that should be left to the
WG itself.
