i thought the 'protocol' was described by the binding  and MEP being used 
- but i guess that would mean we could start to debate what 'protocol' actually means :-)
 
there does come a point when you're so losely coupled, you're not actually coupled at all..

	Cool, thanks for tackling that at the f2f.
	
	But I disagree with the diagram.  As it was explained to me, a WSDL 2.0
	document could be said to "describe the syntax" of client and service
	("schema in, schema out"), rather than "define the behaviour", which
	would require defining what in/out means in relation to any requested
	semantics (aka the protocol).
	
	WSDL 1.1 describes the protocol in that it suggests that a successful
	response to a message means that the requested operation in the message
	was successfully invoked.  WSDL 2.0 is ambiguous.
	
	Mark.
