Well, I asked the WS-RF folks to think about using HTTP for doing GETs
on the state of web service resources at their inaugural meeting in Apr
2004 [1], which I called WS-REST. 

They decided that they couldn't come up with new bindings, aka how to
take a SOAP message and use HTTP GET but not the soap 1.2 soap-response
mep.  I've noodled a bit on how to do this [2] but I'm thinking more and
more that SOAP folks are just in a different world, and so beit.  

Cheers,
Dave
