Web Services Architecture Committee Requirements Document]

Thanks for sharing Joe.

This reminds me of the need for doing an update on the Publishing Web 
Services TN to add details on how to publish QoS attributes for Web 
Services and how to use those QoS attributes for Service discovery. Our 
existing specs handle this use case already but the details need to be 
spelled out.

I propose we add this to our next TC meeting's agenda. Thanks.
