Philippe,

Thanks to the plenary, I have now been able to read your updated HTTP binding.

This really looks great! It's a big improvement to the current HTTP binding,
both in terms of functionality and description. The new structure and much
clearer and modular.

So, my proposal would be to incorporate your revised HTTP as is, and add your
issues into the issues list.

JJ.
