My impression is that at this point the only part of the HTTP binding that's at risk of being removed are the parts called out in the draft, namely the serialization of instance data in parts of the HTTP request IRI - the use of curly braces with the IRI style.

I haven't heard anyone who plans to implement the HTTP binding saying they won't also implement this part.  Is there any evidence to suggest this part (6.7.1) should be cut?  Is it just too early to tell?

Paul/Sanjiva,

I think there is a lot of value in the HTTP binding because it closes the gap between what WSDL 1.1 could describe and what developers are actually using for things like AJAX. I'm sure this won't satisfy REST purists, but even the ability to use GET instead of POST is a welcome improvement.

Hi Sanjiva

+1 FWIW, I was trying to emphasise the difference between WSDL HTTP
which is great for describing messaging systems, but shouldn't get
mired by being sold as some kind of REST description language.

Agreed.
