Subject: RE: [soa-rm] Diagram

See new revision.

Answering your and Wes's comments, I have realized I made a gross
inconsistent decision in the graph.  If Service description points at
Functionality, then Wes is right and it should also point at policy.
For simplistic sake, I would like to recommend we remove the binary
association between service description and functionality and state in
accompanying text that if the service description describes aspects of
the service, the functionality represented by the service, along with
the policy MAY be described along with other aspects of a service.

In keeping with the concept of managed transparency, it would be best to
keep this as a MAY IMO.

In general, I like the diagram but have a few suggested mods:

1. "Capability Metadata" (not included in current diagram) describes 
a Capability, Service Description just describes the 
Service.  However, as seems appropriate to the service provider, the 
Service Description can point to and otherwise reference the 
Capability Metadata if that is useful in describing the Service.

2. More appropriate to say Service accesses Capability rather than

A version hacked in Powerpoint is attached.
