RE: Fw: [wsdl] Charact-set encoding - how to specify in WSDL?

Jean-Jacques, sorry to be unclear. The binding seems like the logical
place for this information, even if it is not in the WSDL 1.1 binding. 

(a) Do we need to provide a means to express this independent of a
specific binding (or a convention that all bindings must follow)? For
instance, an @lang AII that all bindings must use to declare what
character set encoding a binding instance uses.

(b) Or are such wire specifics completely delegated to whatever
description a particular binding feels is required. For instance, some
bindings might state in documentation that only one character set
encoding may ever be used while others may define a binding specific EII
or AII to encode the information.

Does anyone have a scenario that helps drive this one way or the other?

Is it? (You seem to be suggesting it is.)
