RE: Issue 59 alternate proposal

The proposal reflects exactly what is being agreed, what is being sent
elsewhere and what is currently debated:  
First bullet. You are right. Proposal addresses this bullet. . 
Second bullet. As far as the one-way SOAP MEP is concerned, the issue
for SOAP 1.1 and SOAP 1.2 is two separate issues. SOAP 1.1/HTTP
behaviour is addressed by WS-I BP 1.x profile and there is no
architected SOAP MEP for one way in SOAP 1.1. SOAP 1.2 one-way MEP is
needed and this has been communicated to the XMLP by our group and WSD.
We further indicated the issues with the binding to them as well. So, we
have told them our requirements, so did WSD. The proposal therefore does
not need to address one-way MEP as the consensus of the tc is being
addressed with respect to this need elsewhere. 
Third bullet. Response binding markup was never fully agreed on due to
the issues that I have raised, and this is what we are debating right
now as to how to address them and what additional constraints that we
may require iin the specification if we would like to support it. I will
send couple of points for this later on in response to Marc's mail in a
separate message.

	I thought we had reached at least a rough consensus on:

	*	Use 202 as an HTTP response if nothing else is coming
	*	We need some kind of one-way SOAP MEP 
	*	We should add a "response bindings" markup to
usingAddressing to indicate the ways that an endpoint can send back
(async) responses. 

	I'm a little concerned to read that we've really only agreed on
one of these three.

		Dear Dave,

as they both

product hat on.
		We have SOAP 1.1/HTTP and SOAP 1.2/HTTP. Both of them
are in scope, both

		on the latter). We have a limited time to deliver
something useful that
		people can interoperate on. 
		We can not define MEPs for SOAP 1.1/HTTP.

choices we have
