Reported in this paper is the view that contemporary web service description enabled by techniques such as WSDL and Semantic Web technologies are not sufficient when matching web services with a set of continuously evolving user requirements driven by organisational objectives. A project that tried to incorporate web services into a software deployment is used as the vehicle to highlight such limitations. Consequently, we report on a method devised to supplement web services with 'pragmatic information' and propose that adding pragmatic information to web services is a research challenge that needs addressing. In addition to the move proposed in this paper, we claim that the concept of 'pragmatic' is an often misguided term when aligned to web service use in organisational contexts of different kinds.
