RE: Comments from WS-A on WSDL 2.0 documents

Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
as a Last Call comment LC346 [1].  The Working Group agreed to fix the
problems as detailed in-line below.

If we don't hear otherwise within two weeks, we will assume this
satisfies your concern.

The WG directed the editors to adopt these editorial improvements.

The WG directed the editors to use alternate terminology.  "References
to endpoints" was a favorite alternative of the WG.

The WG directed the editors to add such a reference.
