Continuing on the SOAP/HTTP Binding review,
I have a comment related to the SOAP binding section 5.10.4.2.1.
When using the SOAP-Response MEP, one needs to serialize the input data, 
if any, in the URI as a query string, following what is done in the HTTP 
binding (section 6.7.2).
The issue is that section 6.7.2 serialization is based on the query 
parameter separator and query parameter default separator properties. 
These properties, while present in the HTTP binding, are not brought in 
the SOAP binding.
Here are two suggestions to solve this small issue:
    - add to the soap/http binding the query parameter separator default 
property, which has the '&' value by default
    - do NOT add any of the @whttp:queryParameterSeparator and 
@whttp:queryParameterSeparatorDefault attributes, as this flexibility is 
not required by the soap binding IMHO.
This way, the serialization algorithm will always use the '&' character 
as the query parameter separator character.
