As part of the resolution of Issue 133: SOAP and Web Architecture [1], I was
actioned to draft text for inclusion in the SOAP 1.2 spec. to address the
resolution of Issue 133. Issue 133 was closed during the WG telcon on 13th
Feb with resolution reported to xmlp-comments@w3.org in [2].

Proposed draft text for insertion into SOAP 1.2 Part 2 Section 7 [3] follows
below:

<draft>
7 Default HTTP Binding

<insertion>
The SOAP Binding Framework enables the definition of multiple bindings
between SOAP and a given underlying protocol. The HTTP binding specified in
the following subsections makes use of the HTTP POST method to transfer SOAP
messages between SOAP Nodes. Note that nothing precludes the specification
of different HTTP bindings that make use of other HTTP methods, or indeed
that make different use of the HTTP POST method. It is also possible to use
the HTTP binding specified here in a way that preserves the semantics of the
HTTP POST method [ref RFC2616], however the onus to ensure the preservation
of HTTP POST semantics falls upon the SOAP application developer.
</insertion>

7.1 Introduction

This SOAP binding specification adheres to the SOAP Binding Framework (see
SOAP Transport Binding Framework), and as such uses abstract properties as a
descriptive tool for defining the functionality of certain features.
</draft>

Comments? Flames? etc.

Best regards
