Issue 165 [1] was raised by me in anticipation of our need to consider 
architectures such as SOAP+Attachments.  The underlying concern was that 
many SOAP messages will processed in environments which are disconnected, 
in the sense that much of the web is inaccessible.  In such situations, 
many URI's will fail to resolve.  Some proposed attachement architectures, 
such as SOAP+Attachments [2] and DIME [3], exist to provide a means of 
carrying information that will be guaranteed available during processing 
of a SOAP message.  The issue suggests that we need to provide an 
architectural framework that will clarify the means by which attachment 
(or other architectures) can establish that certain URI's (presumably 
those referencing attachments) WILL resolve during processing of a SOAP 

The XML Protocols workgroup proposes to consider the above concerns during 
the development of future versions of SOAP, and specifically to consider 
inclusion of attachment procesing in the next revision to the workgroup's 
charter.  Accordingly, and because our existing charter [4] doesn't 
specifically call for consideration of attachments, the workgroup proposes 
to close issue 165 without making any changes or additions to the SOAP 1.2 
working drafts.

As responder I formally proposed this resolution on behalf of the WG.

As the person who originally raised the issue, I signal  my satisfaction 
with this resolution.

Thank you very much.
