The WSDL WG is addressing a comment on the granularity of SOAP action
[1].  Currently the WSDL SOAP bindings provide control over value of
SOAP Action through the {soap action} property and associated
wsoap:action attribute - on Binding Operations.  WS-A's wsaw:Action
attribute is associated with individual messages instead of at the
operation level.

 

It appears that the granularity of these facilities should be the same,
especially in light of the requirement that SOAP action and WS-A
[action] have the same value in messages that include both.

 

Before changing our spec (moving wsoap:action to message references) the
WSDL WG wanted to confirm with the action experts in your group that
message-level granularity for wsaw:Action matches both best and existing
practices, and that keeping the placement of these two facilities
consistent in WSDL 2.0 would be a good idea.
