1. is 'based' the right term?

2. grrr SOA! i'm unclear what this really means in this case. though
i've been following the lists for quite a while now, i still find it
really hard to understand the target use cases are for tuscany. is it
possible to accurately describe what what tuscany is used for without
using buzzwords?

3. is the definition a little ambiguous?

((simplifies the development and deployment of service oriented
applications) and (provides a managed service-oriented runtime))
based on the standards defined by the OASIS OpenCSA group

vs

(simplifies the development and deployment of service oriented
applications) and ((provides a managed service-oriented runtime)
based on the standards defined by the OASIS OpenCSA group)

4. does tuscany really want to limit itself to a single standard? if
another organisation created standards in this same area, would
tuscany really wish to exclude itself from creating an implementation?
