WS-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.

We'd like to avoid having to require a particular fault serialization type
in our HTTP bindings. That is, we anticipate SPARQL services being free to
serialize fault messages in several different Media Types: plain text, HTML,
XML, RDF, etc.

If whttp:faultSerialization is a required property and the default value
doesn't describe our service, what alternative do we have?

Hugo Haas responded to my initial comments thus:

  Maybe the fault serialization should be a property of the Binding Fault
  and Binding Fault Reference components, rather than of the Binding
  Operation, which would solve your problem.

There may be other design choices as well.

Cheers, 
Kendall Clark
