There's more business service level details typically involved with a business collaboration that what's going to be captured in any CPP or agreed to CPA. The CP? is a technical layer convention, where as you mention later it's business driving details are declared later. 
Web Services here is perhaps really just let one CPP specify an easy to call business service 'application capability'; and what's behind the Web Service technically is a totally other matter.

Actually the BP schema is only a very very simple manifestation of the true business collaboration as being defined by the bounds of the UMM; and as we discovered this past week @ eBTWG the BPSS v1.0 is kinda 'in need of immediate first-aid repair'. Still, even with a repaired BPSS  I'd caution any
software maker who is *only* look at the BPSS as a runtime instance, that they're not looking at capturing the entire BP model and where ebXML/eBTWG is heading off to.
