The creation of this binding is what I see as a problem. It means that we also then need to specify the binding for
other 'carriers' such as JMS. I'd rather SOAP was isolated from whatever way it is transported and then there is no need
to define error handling characteristics for the 'carrier' (or whatever term you prefer). SOAP will just exist within
its carrier and deal with errors itself. It seems like a specification overhead to define how it fits into each
'carrier' as regards error handling.
