There is a lot of good stuff in here.  I've only read through it once, 
quickly.  It clearly deserves more than that.

As a general comment, I like the enumeration of the issues we're trying 
to deal with (e.g., what to do with an HTTP return code when you're not 
doing vanilla SOAP/HTTP).  I also find the conclusions plausible, but I 
can't sign up to them wholesale without further thought.  I particularly 
agree that a 1:1 correspondence between WSDL and SOAP MEPs will most 
likely collapse under its own weight.

Beyond that, I'll have to ruminate a bit more and respond in detail.  In 
the mean time, I wanted to at least send an ACK.
