I was serious too. The binding supports two MEPs - request/response 
with the initiator making an HTTP request to a (HTTP) server which 
returns a SOAP Request in an HTTP Response. The initiator then sends a 
SOAP response in the body of an HTTP request, and the server responds 
with the appropriate content. A response-only MEP is also supported, in 
which the initiator sends an HTTP request, to which the HTTP server 
counters with a SOAP response.
