If we make these suggested changes then we'll have to do lots of work  
on the HTTP binding since it doesn't talk about 'sending' or  
'receiving' states, only 'sending + receiving' and receiving + sending'.

I'm not saying that this is the wrong thing to do, only that the  
consequences of the change are larger than suggested :-(.
