Anish:  you and I have an action to draft the edits to SOAP part 2 to show 
optionality of the response envelope.  I did a bit of drafting tonight, 
and have a rough cut at the MEP section.  I haven't touched the HTTP 
binding, but it should be straightforward.  Since we have a call on Wed., 
I'm taking the risk of copying this note to everyone so people can start 
reading.  Since the diff marking stuff in the stylesheets didn't seem 
usable (or I've forgotten how), I've just put "***" markers near 
everything I've changed.  Search for them and you'll find pretty much 
everything I've done.  As I say, this is rough and unproofread.  I also 
didn't change all the "This version/latest version" URIs on the title 
page, as that would mean messing with the entities DTD, and I didn't want 
to touch that. 

I may or may not get to do more tomorrow.

A few caveats: 

* I think the original neglected to say that received envelopes should be 
processed with the SOAP processing model.  I've tentatively added that, 
but not very carefully just yet.  Maybe it's already stated elsewhere.

* I wasn't careful about hyperlinking terms like SOAP Processing model. If 
we decide to use this approach, we'll have to do that editing.

Anyway, HTML is at [1], XML at [2].

BTW:  though I've skimmed Dave Orchard's formulation, this shouldn't be 
taken as a direct response to details of that.  This is just in 
fulfillment of the specific action item that Anish and I took.  We can all 
compare the two approaches as we move forward.
