How do we specify in the metadata for a *service*, the way that that service
should be invoked?
The current schema has minimal Capability and Interface, neither of which
describes how to call the service.
We need to specify:
1. what type of service it is (enumerated list: WebService, CGI - any
2. what parameters it takes and the data types of those parameters (I guess
for a web service we just need to include some part of the WSDL) and how
they are referenced ('name' part of the ?name=value&name2=value2 for cgi).
3. the address of the service (url mostly).
4. anything else?
