pattern language as a template for describing the abstract patterns we are

Subject: [ebsoa] Clarification on Patterns
I'm taking a step back and re-examining our discussions on patterns that
have occurred over the past several weeks, and have some questions
(1) I know we've said that we've decided that we would create a pattern
language - is that what we *really* want? Is it too low-level (i.e.
toward assembly language) for the purposes of this TC? Patterns can be
conveyed without the use of a pattern language, as IBM does in their SOA
(2) What are some examples of existing pattern languages? I did not see
any glaring references in any of the e-mail threads.
