Choreography might actually be the exception. Specs like WSCI and BPEL seem to be perfectly happy addressing their domain in complete abstraction from the particular WSDL binding used. 

(An actual deployment of the process would, of course, have to be concerned about the effects of particular WSDL bindings on the interoperability of participating services. And any realistic deployment would have to address issues like security and reliability, where the interoperability strength of SOAP would be crucial).
