Subject: Re: [soa-rm-ra] reaching closure on Action

This is a misunderstanding of the counts as relation.
There is no sense in which CA should be thought of as instead of the  
service action.

Essentially there are two 'worlds': the world of communication and the  
world of service action. In the latter world we are concerned with  
services and actions against them. In the world of communication we  
have communication. The counts-as relation allows us to connect the  
two architecturally and conceptually.

Personally, I have come the conclusion that we need both concepts of  
action, and the connection between them. For one thing, when  
discussing MEPs etc., these are concepts at the communication level  
and have no bearing on RWE.
