Another comment arising from a pre LC review.

Simply stated: One part of the document [1] states that a binding
specification does "define its own processing rules [for features expressed
external to the SOAP envelope] to which a SOAP nodes is expected to
conform."; While another part of the document [2] states that "a binding
does *not* provide a separate processing model...".

Taken together, the meaning of [1] and [2] is at best not clear, and at
worst contradictory. There may be subtle differences the use of terms like
"processing rules" and "processing model".

I don't have a fix to offer, because I know what the text is trying to tell


[1] http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-soap12-part1-20020626/#soapfeature
2nd to last sentence of last paragraph states:
"A binding specification that expresses such features external to the SOAP
envelope needs to define its own processing rules to which a SOAP node is
expected to conform (for example, describing what information is passed
along with the SOAP message as it leaves the intermediary)."

[2] http://www.w3.org/TR/2002/WD-soap12-part1-20020626/#transpbindframew
Last paragraph states:
"A binding does not provide a separate processing model and does not
constitute a SOAP node by itself. Rather a SOAP binding is an integral part
of a SOAP node (see 2. SOAP Processing Model)."
