This reminds me that it would be great if WSA could address the ebXML stack,
not just at the level of harvesting some of its architectural aspects, but
more directly discussing those areas that ebXML covers but are missing in
WSs (e.g. ebMS's reliable messaging) and those areas that overlap in WS and
ebXML (e.g. UDDI vs. ebXML's repository). This type of work might not
involve foundational aspects of Web Services, but can still provide
invaluable help to the real world WS and ebXML communities, and might
clarify once for all (too much to ask, probably) what is the relationship
between Web Services and ebXML.

In fact, isn't this already addressed by WSDL 1.2, "HTTP GET and POST
Binding"?
