I think someone took parts of my email out of context. This *is* done 
at the binding level, and we are not specifying any new MEPs. The 
document is called the Reversed HTTP Binding for SOAP - I would 
encourage you to take a look at it for more information. 
http://www.projectliberty.org/specs This does indeed associate the HTTP 
Request with a SOAP response and vice-versa.
