Hi Dave.

I am copying www-ws-desc so that we don't lose this editorial issue.

You had questions about how styles were relating to serializations in
the full-potato proposal[1] we agreed upon in NYC, the text in
question being under "Noting that certain serializations come with
restrictions". 

Looking at your latest version, I think that the following changes to
3.6[2] would implement this part of the proposal:

- Change 1, 3.6 introduction:

  The following serialization formats are used to encode the instance
  data  corresponding to the input and output message, as well as the
  media types and HTTP headers associated.

changed into:

  The following serialization formats may be used to encode the
  instance data corresponding to the input and output message, as well
  as the media types and HTTP headers associated.

  Other serializations may be used. Those may place restrictions on
  the style of the interface operation bound.

- Change 2, 3.6.1:

  This serialization format is designed to allow a Web Service to
  produce a URI based on the instance data of input messages.

changed into:

  This serialization format is designed to allow a Web Service to
  produce a URI based on the instance data of input messages. It can
  only be used for interface operation using the URI Style format
  <link to 3.5.1 here>.

- Change 3, 3.6.3:

  This format is for legacy compatibility to permit the use of XForms
  clients with [IETF RFC 2387] servers.

changed into:

  This format is for legacy compatibility to permit the use of XForms
  clients with [IETF RFC 2387] servers. This serialization format can
  only be used for interface operation using the Multipart Style format
  <link to 3.5.2 here>.

- Change 4:

I think it makes more sense to switch "3.6 Serialization format of
instance data" and "3.5 Operation Styles", though this is obviously
purely editorial.

Regards,

Hugo
