Subject: Re: [wsbpel] Issue - 11 Your opinion requested

I prefer Proposal A, only in that it seems more complete. I don't
understand Yaron's concern that Proposal B precludes XQuery since XQuery
is an extension of XPath Version 2.0.

At the conference call this morning, I presented issue 11 as it has
progressed so far.  The current state is that there are 2 proposals on
the table, both of which are equivalent in terms of what they
accomplish, but we don't need both of them.  The desire is that we get
some feedback from the TC as to which avenue to pursue, so that we can
flush out one of them, and present it to the TC for a vote.  Links to
the issues are below.  If you have any opinon at all, please respond to
this mail with AT LEAST +A/-A +B/-B so we can gauge reactions to the
proposals.  If you want to share reasons for your opinion, that is
welcome, too.  Note that you should take these proposals as
partially-baked.  We plan to refine the "winning" proposal into one that
is spec-worthy.

On the call and in email since the summaries were posted, there has
been some discussion.  I have linked the email point here, and I hope
that those who expressed support for either option (I believe it was
just Yaron, but I could be wrong) will repeat them in email for
posterity.  Unfortunately, Chris Keller was not on the call at the time
of discussion, and I was unable to present his proposal with the clarity
that he would have, so the discussion may have been skewed in favor of
my proposal.  If that occurred, it was certainly not my intention to
bias the discussion.

The hope is that we will get a sense of direction by the next
conference call, and failing that, at the September face to face. 
Putting the issue to a Kavi ballot for a sense of direction was also
raised (by Monica Martin?), since that would force those who cared to
state their opinion.
