Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] Action - Why we have failed...

I agree with Jeff that we need to get this right.

My question at this point is whether we are mixing levels of 
abstraction with respect to the definition of Action in relation to 
Service. If we say that our definition of Action is abstract e.g. 
Action is the application of intent by a participant or 
participants... , and can be the parent of any singular action or of 
any joint action does that help?
