Description Doug Davis 2009-11-05 17:01:45 UTC
We define wsa:Metadata/mex:Metadata as:
<wsa:EndpointReference ...>
    <wsa:ReferenceParameters> xs:any* lt;/wsa:ReferenceParameters> ?
        <mex:Metadata> xs:any* </mex:Metadata>?
    </wsa:Metadata> ?

    A unique mex:Metadata element appearing as a direct child of the wsa:Metadata endpoint reference element. 

What not clear is whether or not there can be more than one
mex:Metadata element under the wsa:Metadata element since the xs:any could
technically include it.  I see no reason to ban it.

Change the ? to a * on mex:Metadata and remove the word "unique".

or if we do want to ban it then we need to add some text being explicit about it.

To be clear - my proposal is to allow it.
Comment 2 Doug Davis 2010-01-27 18:23:51 UTC
wu proposes to add: "It may also embed multiple metadata as separate metadata sections under one metadata element"
Comment 3 Robert Freund 2010-01-27 18:24:48 UTC
resolved as proposed with additional recommendation text
