Should there be a feature for requesters to query for a specific retrieval
(such as HTTP Get, SOAP Get or inline) mechanism?

Proposed Clarification:
Retrieval mechanisms are at the discretion of the provider. Depending on a
providerís infrastructure, the provider may offer one or more mechanisms. That
is, the provider may provide metadata resources over whatever protocols and
bindings that the provider supports. A metadata resource is just another

If a requester would like to use a particular mechanism for communicating with
a metadata resource, the requestor could use a discovery mechanism that would
help the requestor to discover endpoints that support a specific protocol or
binding. Such discovery mechanisms are outside the scope of the
WS-MetadataExchange specification.
