    Coordination services are services, possibly implemented as web services, that support the coordination of (real-world) services that a consumer would like to take. To support users of a future Internet of Services, the effect of the coordination services must be described in such a way that users are not only able to discover services but also to detect and prevent possible conflicts in their composition. In this paper, REA is applied as a solution approach to this requirement. The REA business ontology has proven to be a good foundation for the description of services, but we argue that its conceptualization of commitments can be improved.
