Just as we did for the Core and SOAP Binding documents, I'd like to  
review the WSDL Binding-related requirements that are expressed in  
our charter, to ensure that we're ready to progress when we close our  
last WSDL-related issue.

As I read it, the WSDL-specific requirements therein, along with how  
we fulfil them (or fail to) are:

"B. The use of these abstract message properties in the context of  
all WSDL 1.1 or WSDL 2.0 Message Exchange Patterns..."  -- see  
Section 4, WS-Addressing and WSDL Message Exchange Patterns.

"... including the asynchronous use of these MEPs."  -- see i059

"[T]he relationship between message properties and WSDL 1.1 and WSDL  
2.0 service descriptions will be provided if applicable." -- Not  
sure; does Section 4 address this adequately?

"WSDL 1.1 bindings must include language that the bindings are  
defined for backward compatibility only." -- see Section 1,  
Introduction. Is this statement strong enough?

"[Provide] the mechanisms for defining Web Services Addressing  
property values in WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0 service descriptions." --  
see i056, i057, i058.

Any thoughts or additions would be welcome.
