 [At first glance, this seems to pose some architectural issues that we may
wish to state an opinion on.  Or at least we should make sure that the WSA
document/glossary/use cases has content that would be useful to "future
generations" confronted with the question of how the WS description language
could/should relate to HTTP and the Web method feature in SOAP.  Thoughts,
anyone?]

I took an ACTION to restart discussion on the HTTP binding issues.  Most of
the issues are about increasing the functionality available in the HTTP
binding.  Jeffrey did a great job of summarizing the issues and proposing
dispositions [1] based on the principle of not increasing the functionality
in the HTTP binding.  His rationale is an obvious lack of interest in this
functionality by the WG.

I propose we first address this larger question of what scenarios we
envision the HTTP binding being used in, and how expressive the binding need
to be in order to satisfy the needs of those scenarios.  Should we increase
the expressive power of the HTTP binding?

I will set aside time at this week's telcon to address this question.
After we've reached some consensus on that question, the individual issues
Jeffrey categorizes and proposes resolutions to [1] should proceed more
quickly.
