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


I think the RM is clear that the service is not the same as the  
interface, and it specifically says the service accesses the  
capability.  The specifics of the access are not specified but it is  
easy to think of the specifics as private actions.  I do not expect  
our final discussions of action to counter this.
