Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
as a Last Call comment LC345 [1].  This opened up discussion on a number
of improvements and clarifications to this capability.  The Working
Group agreed to implement proposals at
http://www.w3.org/2002/ws/desc/5/09/wsdl20-adjuncts.html#_http_serializa
tion and
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-ws-desc/2005Nov/0020.html, plus
change the "/" syntax to an attribute.  Rather than peruse those
proposals, you might instead see the fixes incorporated into our latest
editor's draft [2].

As we plan to go to CR shortly, if we don't hear from you within 10
days, we will assume this satisfies your concern.

Subject: POST & application/x-www-form-urlencoded serializatin


S-Desc,

I'm writing on behalf of DAWG, which is using WSDL 2.0 to specify the
SPARQL
Protocol for RDF [1]. We have a couple of LC comments about WSDL 2.0,
and
I'll be sending each one in a separate message. This message contains
the
last LC comment we intend to raise at this time.

We have added a POST binding for our sole operation, query, because we
anticipate there being SPARQL queries, perhaps autogenerated ones, that
are
too long to transmit reliably over GET, serialized into a URI.
Therefore, we
added a POST binding, and we'd like the serialization of the input
message
for that POST operation to be application/x-www-form-urlencoded. We do
not
have an XML serialization of SPARQL's surface syntax, so that we cannot
POST
application/xml. 

As with our other two comments, we raise this because we'd like to use
WSDL
2.0 to describe our service *accurately* and completely.

Cheers, 
Kendall Clark
