Question: Why did you downgrade the HTTP GET/POST binding to SHOULD? I
think the charter makes it clear that they are a MUST. I am particularly
sensitive to this issue because the WSDL 1.1 definition of the HTTP
GET/POST bindings has problems (they are not orthogonal to the portType).

   SOAP 1.2 Binding

   DR061

       [MUST/SHOULD] Charter: It is expected that in the near-term future,
   Web services will be accessed largely through SOAP Version 1.2 (the
   XML-based protocol produced by the XML Protocol Working Group) carried
   over HTTP/1.1, or by means of simple HTTP/1.1 GET and POST requests. The
   Working Group will describe the following bindings:

          1.

             [MUST] SOAP Version 1.2; SOAP can be used over a variety of
   underlying protocols; the Working Group will provide a concrete SOAP
   Version 1.2 over HTTP binding.
          2.

             [SHOULD] HTTP/1.1 GET and POST requests.
