Brief mention was made in last week's telcon about the editorial note
in the current SOAP Optimized Attachment Use Cases and Requirements
document about removed requirements:

   We have removed requirements having to do with serialization part
   ordering.  Such requirements may be added pending use case
   analysis.

The single removed requirement was:

R11. The serialization should not specify a particular physical
     ordering of parts.

     In particular, this requirement was motivated by a use case in
     which the primary (SOAP) part was not required to be the first
     part.

     Physical order is significant, and there are cases in which
     control over physical order is important (for example, see R26).
     The issue here is whether the serialization should be as rigid as
     SwA in insisting, for example, that the primary SOAP part be the
     first part.

The proposal to remove the requirement was made and accepted at the
July 2003 F2F [1].

Regards,


Tony Graham
