Subject: RE: [wsdm] [UPlat] Action items for next weeks meeting

Based on ths discussion on the conf call today, here is an updated
definition for addressing that better highlights how it relates to identity.

Addressing is the ability to reference an identified entity so that it can
be accessed. In the case of a web service, "being accessed" means getting
hold of its WSDL description and any extra information that might be needed
to route messages to the service.
