Hi Gurus,

The Abstract section of Part 2 defines WSDL 2.0 as follows:-

"WSDL 2.0 is an XML format for describing network services as a set of
endpoints operating on messages containing either document-oriented or
procedure-oriented information"

I had a suggestion - apologies if its not worth it :-)
Maybe we could
i) Rephrase this definition,  and
ii) Perhaps have one common definition that can be inlined in all parts of
the spec if necessary. [Primer, Part 1 and Part 2]

In any case,  w.r.t the current definition, I had a few thoughts.
a) "network services" maybe a non-standard term. The term "web services"
itself cd be used.
b)  The latter part of the definition states --> operating on messages
containing "document oriented information" ---- the usage "document oriented
information" is not very clear to the reader. [though I can understand the
same :-).]

Shift to the left, shift to the right!
Pop up, push down, byte, byte, byte!
