Subject: NEW ISSUE: Correct C++ Terminology

Target: C++ Client and Implementation Specification

Description:  The current specification. has numerous occurrences of "method"
 which is not correct C++ terminology. Most of these are in prose and can be easily changed to either "member function" or "operation" based on context (i.e. specific to C++ or referring to a service operation).  However, we also have method and callbackMethod child elements in interface.cpp and a method child element in implementation.cpp (the method child elements both appeared in the 1.0 schema).


1) Replace "method" in the prose with either "member function" or "operation" as appropriate for the context..
2) Rename the method child elements to function (memberFunction seems cumbersome here).  This is a significant change and needs to be noted in the migration appendix.  We should allow an implementation to support both method and function child elements.
3) Rename the callbackMethod child element to callbadkFunction.  This child element was not in the 1.0 schema so this is a less significant change.
