Subject: RE: [sca-assembly] Exit Criteria Incomplete

Since interop can only be demonstrated by supporting binding.ws, I think the Bindings TC need to consider this for its exit criteria. Assuming the Bindings TC satisfies your concerns for interop, the dependency between these two specs would imply no change to the Assembly exit criteria.
