Subject: Re: [wsrp-wsia] Creating an issue - RuntimeContext

This text in the draft has been modified based on recent decisions to:

entityInstanceKey: A unique, opaque string the Consumer MAY supply as a 
reference to this use of the entity. This reference MAY be used by the 
entity to properly separate data for multiple instances of the entity 
within any Producer-defined data sharing mechanisms. Since this reference 
may be used as such a key, its length MUST be less than 256 bytes and 
Consumers SHOULD keep it as short as possible.

There has also been a suggestion to add a note that a Producer could use 
this as a reference in place of generating a sessionID and that such a use 
will likely have a positive impact on the Consumer's performance.

Topic: RuntimeContext
Class: Minor Technical
Title: Intent and scope of uniqueness of the entityInstanceID in the 
Document Section: 5.1.2
What is the intent of entityInstanceID in RuntimeContext? The spec is 
unclear about the difference between the producer-generated entityHandle 
and consumer-generated entityInstanceID. It appears that the producer 
will have to use both entityHandle and entityInstanceID to uniquely 
associate data with an entity. However, for producers not offering 
registration, the consumer generated entityInstanceID (along with 
entityHandle) is not adequate for guaranteeing uniqueness on the 
producer end.
