Without getting into all of that, because I consider it a red herring,
let me try to provide an example.

Suppose you were given this URI, and were told that it identified a SOAP
service of somebody who sold shoes;

http://joes-shoes.example.org/111111

How would you go about ordering shoes in this case, keeping in mind that
there's been no prior communication between yourself and this service
provider?
