WSDL is a useful tool for describing the message bindings a WebService
supports.  I'd suggest we do a WSDL as the mechanism for specifying the
SOAP binding for an XKMS service.  This should be straigthforward based
on code Phill already has and available WSDL generation tools.

I don't see any particular value in creating a WSDL that specifies the
XKMS messages without incorporating the protocols binding sections.
This adds no value beyond the message schemas we already have.

As to the IP issue.  The orginal WSDL Note was submitted by a number of
companies, some who made royalty free declarations and some who made
RAND declarations.  (I am not however, aware of any of these companies
declaring any actual IP requiring licensing and royalty payments.)  WSDL
1.2 is being developed under the W3C Web Services Activity.  That
activity was chartered with a royalty free IP policy.  Basically, we
have the same situation as with IP declarations related to SOAP.  Use of
SOAP 1.2 and WSDL 1.2 for our SOAP binding requirements provides
reasonable assurance we're not requiring use of IP encumbered

Phill had certain expectations from WSDL for XKMS [1].  Are we or should
someone write a WSDL for XKMS schema or has someone already done that.
If yes, should we put it in the spec or as an additional note?

There is currently only a reference to WSDL, but, nothing more than that
in our spec.  Also, are there any IP releated issues w.r.t. WSDL?
