this issue has been the subject of much debate during the 
life of the WG, and was discussed during last week's F2F:

Single interface per service issues:
    - Issue LC73: WSDL Last Call issue [2]
    - Issue LC75n: WSDL 2.0 Last Call Comments [3]
    - Issue LC89k: Comments [4]
    - Roberto's proposal [5]
      Majority in favour of reopening?

I suggest you observe the outcome of this discussion (the minutes
have yet to be published) and if you have new information, consider 
raising a separate Last Call comment (though officially the deadline 
has expired).

Subject: RE: Two logical WSDL documents describing the same service


I picked up on this thread from the document WSDL 2.0 Primer, 21 Dec

I was particularly coming from looking at WSRF proposal.

One would expect a service (in a loose sense) to manage more than one
E.g a file repository managing a file resource-type and a directory
But a resource type is characterised by a resource-property document
An interface/port-type can identify a resource-property document, but
only one
A service can have only one interface, and thus can manage only mange
one-resource type.
Unless our repository service end-point has two WSDLs, defining a
service for files and a service for directories.

Any comments on this?
