[..]

You consider a combination of bindings (e.g. SMTP+RPC) as a new
binding requiring a new identifier.

Once people have come up with lots of different nested bindings
(attachments, RPC, maybe compression, etc), the number of combinations
will be fairly high, and a URI for each of them might become
unworkable.

Presumably, the binding (and unbinding) of the SOAP message will have
to be an ordered operation: e.g. XML Infoset -> XML serialization ->
MIME multipart -> SMTP.

What about an ordered list of URIs for a combination of bindings?
