I read in the current draft of the HTTP binding that it is supporting 
the "https" uri scheme.
It seems interesting to have this also in the soap/http binding (I think 
I saw in a WS-I profile something similar...), basic security at a 
reasonnable price... I believe that the current soap1.2/http binding can 
be used as is with https, am I right?

The first question is of course whether we should add this in the core 
spec or let this be handled through extensibility...
Presently, I believe that something very simple but functional enough 
should be added, maybe just a few words explaining how it works, maybe a 
little bit more like adding support to basic https options like 
basic/mutual authentication.
Any thoughts?
