I took an ACTION to restart discussion on the HTTP binding issues.  Most
of the issues are about increasing the functionality available in the
HTTP binding.  Jeffrey did a great job of summarizing the issues and
proposing dispositions [1] based on the principle of not increasing the
functionality in the HTTP binding.  His rationale is an obvious lack of
interest in this functionality by the WG.

I propose we first address this larger question of what scenarios we
envision the HTTP binding being used in, and how expressive the binding
need to be in order to satisfy the needs of those scenarios.  Should we
increase the expressive power of the HTTP binding?

I will set aside time at this week's telcon to address this question.
After we've reached some consensus on that question, the individual
issues Jeffrey categorizes and proposes resolutions to [1] should
proceed more quickly.
