Today, Part 1 and 2 have three different styles for setting default values
...

[Style A] via mapping from XML Representation to component properties.

Example: {required} = The actual value of the required attribute information
item if present, otherwise "false".

[Style B] via XML Representation

Example: A [local name] of cookies 
 A [namespace name] of "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl/http" 
 A type of xs:boolean
 A default value of false

[Style C] via description of a component

Example: {http query parameter separator} REQUIRED. A xs:string indicating
the query parameter separator character. Its default value is "&".


LC97 is about choosing one of these styles instead of many. Either [Style A]
or [Style C] works. I do not know how [Style B] works. I prefer [Style A].
Attached below is a survey of setting default values in Part 1 and 2. To
summarize,

Style A = [A1] thru [A9] (see below)
Style B = [B1] thru [B5] (see below)
Style C = [C1] (see below)


While reviewing part 2 for LC97, I bumped into a related sub issue. In Part
2, Section 5.10.4 -

"{http transfer coding} = The actual value of the whttp:transferCoding
attribute information item on the Binding Message Reference or Binding Fault
Reference component, if present. If not, the actual value of the
whttp:transferCodingDefault on the Binding Operation component, if present.
If not, the actual value of the whttp:transferCodingDefault on the Binding
component, if present."

In the above para, we are mixing XML Representation and Component
Properties. Why? whttp:transferCoding attribute does not exist on Binding
Message / Fault Reference component. whttp:transferCodingDefault attribute
does not exist on the Binding component.

Thank you for reading!
