Sorry for missing the call; as usual.

Axis2 intends to codegen from the HTTP binding; just haven't gotten to it yet!

+1.

We have to be careful - there's conflict of interest from folks from 
web-http-desc wanting this taken out. That's not a good reason for 
removing it!

That's ok :).

Absolutely!

WADL can waddle along and defined whatever they want. That doesn't mean we 
need to pull this out. If users don't want both let market forces decide 
the "winner".

WSDL's HTTP binding is not about REST! Its about describing how to 
exchange WSDL messages over raw HTTP without SOAP.
