I was asked to provide a proposal for the resolution of LC issue #385 [1]
at the SOAP 1.2 Attachment Feature LC WD [2].

Issue description:

1. Conformance clause should be added that would

-  describe the subject of conformance (a binding specification)

-  summarizes what does it mean to conform to this specification

-  List dependencies: describe what other parts of SOAP
1.2 specification/other specifications a binding must conform to in
order to conform to this specification


I used the Conformance text from the XML Infoset rec [3] as a starting
point for writing the proposed conformance clause text below:

Since the purpose of the Attachment Feature is to provide an abstract model,
conformance is a property of binding specifications that use this model,
rather than of implementations.

Binding specifications referring to the Attachment Feature MUST:

    -Indicate a means by which the primary and secondary parts are made
    available to the receiving party.
    -Indicate a mechanism by which each part is identified using a URI
    -Indicate a means by which receivers can distinguish the primary and
    -Conform to the SOAP Protocol Binding Framework described in SOAP
version 1.2
    Part 1.
