Greetings, the XForms Working Group have reviewed the serialization 
section of Web Services Description Language (WSDL) Version 2.0 Part 3: 
Bindings [1] as requested. We have the following comments:

1 - In 3.8.1 Serialization as "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" it 
states that escaping MUST be defined as in XForms, so not much difference 
here. However, WSDL uses the ampersand (&) character as a separator 
between pairs of parameters. XForms allows the specification of either 
ampersand (&) or semi-colon (;) as the  separator with semi-colon being 
the default [2]. This choice was introduced following comments on the Last 
Call Draft published in January 2002. 

2 - WSDL 2.0 makes no mention of "multipart/related", we do not know if 
this is a problem but it is supported by XForms [3]
