Reviewing the soap binding, I have the following comments.

As of today, the SOAP binding defines how to map the inout mep to the 
request-response and soap-response meps.
The mapping from in-only and robust in-only meps to SOAP meps are not 
defined, which makes difficult or at least not very interoperable the 
use of these two WSDL meps with the SOAP binding.

It seems that the newest version of the SOAP1.2 specification 
(http://www.w3.org/2000/xp/Group/2/06/LC/soap12-part2.html) will provide 
the SOAP/HTTP binding with the support of the request-optional response 
mep. This mep fits well with the robust-in-only mep at least.
It may therefore be interesting to add in the WSDL SOAP binding section 
a robust-inonly mep to soap mep mapping description.
Concerning the in-only mep, the situation seems less clear. Of course we 
could also bind the in-only mep to the request-optional response mep. On 
the other hand, a SOAP1.2 one way mep is under way but has no support in 
the SOAP1.2/HTTP binding.

What do you think ?
