Are we specifically referring to the "HTTP GET/POST binding" here or to 
the SOAP/HTTP binding as well? I take it is the former.  I do not 
particularly see an issue with the SOAP/HTTP binding for output 
operations. As we discussed in the last week's WG call, only the actual 
end-point information (where the output operations get transmitted to) 
needs to be obtained via out-of-band means ; but all other SOAP/HTTP 
binding aspects are equally applicable to input and output operations..

Regards, Prasad

I promised to send a statement of the proposal that emerged on output
ops at the last telcon.

The proposal is:
1) Keep output operations in the spec.
2) Publish the TCP binding as a note motivating the need to retain
output operations.
3) Add a non-normative reference to this note from the spec.
4) State that the HTTP binding simply does not support output
operations. Arthur has an action to investigate what it would mean to
support output ops in the HTTP binding, which may lead to a proposal or
issues, or both.
