The list of differences is completely ridiculous.  I can write
tunnelling-oriented SOAP right now, and the only difference between what
I use and your "application semantic" binding is whether faults come
back using 500 or 200.

Not at all.  It could be completely up to the local server
configuration.  I could write all my web services as CGI scripts and
nobody would know.
