Okay, but in my view one of the virtue of the web is that "two parties"
is just a degenate case of "multiple parties". I would structure my
services this way so that every step in a transaction represents a new
XML document with pointers to the next set of possible steps...like a
Choose Your Own Adventure book. Even if there are only two actual
parties involved, WSDL won't help me. :(
I need a schema language that says what happens when you follow links,
or apply HTTP methods to things that are referenced in links...I guess
I'll have to do it myself some day.
