During some of the "a priori" debates, an issue emerged that hasn't yet
been addressed in the spec (AFAIK).  It's mentioned here;

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xml-dist-app/2002May/0044.html

"[...] I wonder how many SOAP
developers are under the impression that if they send a SOAP message to
an arbitrary URI, and get a 200 response back, that this means that the
SOAP message was processed?  More than a few, I would expect.  Noah's
GET-in-SOAP pseudo-proposal[1] appears to work this way."

Proposed solution (from the referenced message above);

To mention that the context in which the URI is discovered can provide
sufficient information to know whether a URI identifies a SOAP endpoint.
And that without this kind of information, it can't be known whether or
not the SOAP message was processed as a SOAP message.

Thanks.
