Jean-Jacques,

The XMLP WG has made a preliminary determination to close issue 4341 [1] 
and a couple other related issues
with no action. 

The WG felt that while it might be a more pure approach, we did not feel 
that there were compelling enough use cases
to add the complexity. Additionally, given the resolutions to issue 4506, 
we allow the use cases that
would have a SOAP request followed by an MTOM response when the assertion 
is either marked with
wsp:Optional, or when there are multiple alternatives present, some with 
and some without the 
MTOM assertion.

Before we close this issue, we would appreciate your feedback. If you can 
provide compelling use cases,
we would certainly like to understand them better.

Cheers,
