Thank you for following up. I trust & request the editors to make the call.

Hi Asir, all.

I had a look at issue 226[1] to resolve it editorially as agreed by
the WG.

I am wondering about flagging those particular properties as generic.
I could come up with a new SOAP HTTP binding and its description would
make use of say http:method, which could then be considered generic.

Basically, the set of so-called generic properties is difficult to
define, and I would go as far as saying that potentially any property
could be reused in another binding built upon the HTTP binding.

This is why I quite like Dave's approach of listing HTTP Binding
properties that apply to the SOAP 1.2 HTTP binding at the beginning.
In order to make it more reader-friendly, I think we should add some
links to where they're defined.

Does that make sense?

Regards,

Hugo
