Content-location sounds like an intereseting direction to me.  I thinkk 
there are two ways to model this in SOAP:

1)  We could define a SOAP header for use in responses:

        <http:ContentLocation>your-uri-here</http:ContentLocation>

The http binding would carry this in the appropriate http header (and also 
probably in the envelope itself, to preserve its order in the infoset.) 

2) we could just make the ContentLocation a property used by the binding, 
and not model it in the envelope at all.

Thanks.

I like this, it's very simple (you mentioned it before [1]). It's also
possible that the content of a SOAP message may contain URI references
identify resources associated with the operation in hand.

Thanks,
