I think it would be fine (as an editorial change) to add some verbiage 
explaining that WSDL MEPs are independent of transport, protocol and 
message encoding, and as such they are more abstract than SOAP MEPs, but 
that bindings may map WSDL MEPS to the MEPs of specific protocols, such as 
SOAP MEPs.
