Here is a list of design questions ..

General Approach
----------------

Q1. Re-use vs. New Vocabulary?

* Proposal A: re-use [1]
* Proposal B: new vocabulary [2]


SOAP Module
-----------

Q2. SOAP module is a concept. The term SOAP module does not exist in SOAP 11
technical draft. It is possible to backport it. Plus, in practice, web
services security is a SOAP module that can be used with SOAP 11 or 12.
Shall we allow SOAP modules in SOAP 11 binding? [3]


URI
---

Q3. URIs for SOAP 11 HTTP Binding and implicit message exchange pattern:
SOAP 11 draft does not use URIs for the underlying protocol, message
exchange patterns, etc. SOAP 11 binding provides URIs for these features,

HTTP Binding
* http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/soap11/bindings/HTTP
* http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/http
* ..

MEP
* http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/soap11/mep/request-response
* ..


WS-I Basic Profile 1.0
----------------------

Q4. What is the relationship between SOAP 11 binding and WS-I Basic Profile
1.0?

* SOAP 11 Binding is WS-I Basic Profile compliant 1.0
* WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 as a SOAP Module?
* SOAP 11 Binding subsumes WS-I Basic Profile 1.0
* ..


Q5. WS-I Basic Profile 1.0 defines a new message exchange pattern: one-way
(R2714, R2750, R2727) [4]. SOAP 11 binding provides a URI for this MEP,

* http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/soap11/mep/one-way
* ..

Shall we allow it?
