Yeah, but a WSDL "operation" presumably DOES something.  It's not just a
message for the sake of sending bits around.  How about "serviceInvocation"
or "serviceRequest" or something along those lines? If a WSDL message does
anything, it does request that a service be performed by the provider on
behalf of the requester [the current WSA terminology, IIRC].
