I read it as mep and not transport mep, mep are described at the SOAP
level, then the binding has to implement it with its own transport-mep,
but it only a binding problem.

In the case of one way MEP using HTTP, the reply will be discarded, unless

The fact that a URI of an example is in the example.com domain or w3c.org
domain don't change the normative/non-normative of the section, the
constraint being that all URI in w3.org should be deferencable.
