FYI, another I-D that quotes RFC 3205/BCP56, and still manages to abuse
HTTP via the defense that "these concerns lie directly with SOAP over
HTTP, rather than the application of SOAP over HTTP to NETCONF".

Ironically, this application is another one that seems to lend itself
well to the Web model.  In fact, back when it was "XMLCONF", I pointed
them to an I-D that discussed reusing WebDAV for these purposes;

This draft is a work item of the Network Configuration Working Group of the IETF.

	Title		: Using the Network Configuration Protocol 
                          (NETCONF) Over the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP)
	Author(s)	: T. Goddard
	Filename	: draft-ietf-netconf-soap-06.txt
	Pages		: 22
	Date		: 2005-9-19
The Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) is applicable to a wide
   range of devices in a variety of environments.  The emergence of Web
   Services gives one such environment, and is presently characterized
   by the use of the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP).  NETCONF
   finds many benefits in this environment: from the re-use of existing
   standards, to ease of software development, to integration with
   deployed systems.  Herein, we describe SOAP over HTTP (Hypertext
   Transport Protocol) and SOAP over BEEP (Blocks Exchange Extensible
   Protocol) bindings for NETCONF.

NOTE:	The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
