I would like to see added to the list of requirements, a requirement about
the efficient transmission of binary data:

   DRxxx:  Must be able to describe messages that include binary data,
   where the binary data is transmitted efficiently.

Currently in WSDL one can do this in one of several ways:  transmit the
data out of band using e.g., GET or POST, which means that WSDL does not
fully express the service interface; transmit using the HTTP binding, which
is not well supported by tools; or base64 encode the data, which is not

Perhaps this included in DR064, but I would like it to see it more
explicitly stated.

Enclosed is a document that collects the requirements posted to this
