Kirill et al --

This is a good success story, for QA assistance in the early spec 
stages.  (Our review was invited for this one.)

By the way, Kirill, the reference [1] asks us (QA) to indicate if we are 
*not* happy with XMLP's response to our issues.  I looked back at our 
submitted comments/issues, and it seems that their response is good.  Do 
you agree?  Does anyone disagree?

We (QAWG) should probably give them a positive affirmation to that effect.

For proper QAWG process, maybe should we put an item on the Monday telecon 
agenda, "confirm XMLP response to LC comments"?  It would just take a 
minute (or less):  "is anyone dissatisfied with XMLP response to QA LC 
comments on SOAP 1.2?"

-Lofton.
