Jean-Jacques,

What you have described is exactly what we have done - bound a SOAP 
Request to an HTTP Response, and a SOAP Response to an HTTP Request. I 
think that my email may have mislead you into thinking that we have 
defined *new* MEPs for SOAP, but that is not true. This is just an HTTP 
binding "in reverse".
