Subject Re: Representing conversational interfaces, was: svn commit: r525379

Hi,

I came to this from the Java C&I spec which defines some conversation 
characteristics. Is @Conversational used to define the intent? If so, it's a 
bit wierd that the Java C&I steps into the intent area only with this 
annotation.

Thanks,
Raymond
