        Hoisting SOAP Binding attributes
        Name AII on input/output EIIs in port type operations - 
        JM: Martin's issue not yet a new issue -- Martin to take another
                   -> 14. Remove name attribute

10. Reopen issue-intra-port-relationship [21]?

        JM: Weak documentation on why we closed this issue.
        Some question on meeting notes on whether it was closed or not?
        JM: Ok to reopen the issue -- or think about another week.
        JM: Concensus to close issue with reverse decision.
    *** Resolution: Close issue : remove the restriction intra-port

11. Issue: Overloading operations
    - postpone another week.

12. SOAP 1.2 support TF [20]

        JM: Origin of task force to assign champions to particular issues
            -- issue 23 in particular.
        JM: Do we need to do all of SOAP 1.2?  Concerned that task force is
            developing proposals for all of soap issues.
        JJM: Looking at current issues in the list that are soap 1.2 related
             -- different view on the issues list.
        JM: Introduced any new issues -- that are not already reflected in
issues list.
        JJM: No -- may need to raise a few more that we have not done yet.
        JM: Goal of places in soap where we aren't fully supported -- good
            Want to make sure original task done.
        JM: One deliverable -- categorize existing issues -- assertion that
            list is comprehensive in covering soap 1.2 functionality.
        JJM: Pretty much have what the task force has to deliver
             -- MEPs something we aren't supported
             -- also features and bindings to other protocols.
        JM: Issue 23 closed?
        JJM: Probably
        JM: Continue with Monday call and look deeper into MEP issue.
            Continue to look for things that we might not be supporting
fully in SOAP 1.2.

13. Issue 4: Namespaces
    - Martin's proposal :
    - Prasad's mail:
        Gudge: If use = 'literal' then namespace not applicable.
        Sanjiva: Issue of type and element
        Gudge: if encoded, use type, not element
        Move discussion to email?
        Gudge: close with clarification -- if bigger issue makes mute,
that's ok
        JM: Propose to close the issue as Martin/Prasad : use='literal'
            namespace attribute on soap:body not applicable - resolved.
   **** Resolution: Issue 4 closed using Prasad's ammendment to Martin's

14. Issue: optional "name" attribute of <definition>

        Sanjiva's proposal to remove this attribute
        JM: Postpone for Tom to respond?
        Glen: Does not know how strongly Tom feels about this.
ACTION: Glen to ping Tom on issue-remove-optional-name-of-definition

15. Issue issue-multiple-services.
    Sanjiva's proposal at
        Issue already was closed -- allowing multiple.

16. Issue 5: EncodingStyle.
    Arthur recommends closing as a dupe of Issue #30. [31]


17. Issue 25: Interaction between W3C XML Schema and SOAP Data Model 

        Gudge: summary
        Roberto: WSDL 1.1 - no formal description of data model schema was
                 -- or how xml schema in wsdl related to soap data model --
needs work to clarify.
        Sanjiva: agree to clarify -- clarification approach
                 - drop concept of encoding is weak, but something to
        JM: Need someone to work up proposal on this.
        Glen: express in straight schema - known how to map to encoded thing
              -- would solve a lot of problems (use annotations?)
        Gudge: Would like to work on that -- when do you want it by?
        Glen: Very attractive, but feel like there is going to be push back
              -- schema not designed to do....
        Gudge: That magic exists already today -- just describing the magic.
               Status quo is unacceptable.
        Roberto: describe in our spec the rules -- creating a schema for the
                 encoded graph, not the data that then gets encoded
        Gudge: Do we want to expend effort to describe soap encoding in xml
               Mapping rules for soap encoding to xml schema.
        Gudge: Second question -- just want to describe the graph itself.
        Sanjiva: Soap encoding exists -- can't ignore.  Two data models.
        Gudge: Why two?  
        Gudge: XML Schema might be wrong language to use.
        Sanjiva: Tools available for XML Schema -- would be nice to
        Roberto: If data model what we care about
                 -- then start there and see if we can map to xml schema.
        Gudge: Soap group tried to do this and basically punted -- too hard.
               If want type information in graph, here is how to achieve it.
        Gudge: Did not indicate how to have a schema that maps to actual
soap message.
        Gudge: Schema does not describe direct edge labeled graphs.
        Sanjiva: Able to create a schema for the actual wire message --
people have asked for this.
        Gudge: If you can do this -- why isn't the schema used to describe
the message?
        Gudge: Don't understand desire to describe something and then say
               -- "it does not look like that."
        Gudge: Designing a new language to describe this is not
               the right thing -- don't have time.
        JM: If we can design such a language -- understand reqs are
            -- use xml schema as a framework.  Possibly not total waste of
        JM: Question re: gudge's interest graphs instead of soap encoding
        Sanjiva: Might not want to map to soap -- something else
        JM: What questions we want to answer : define the tasks:
        Roberto: Take three options and move to email
ACTION: Roberto to inumerate three options on Issue 25 and post to email

18. Issue 30: soap:body encodingStyle
    Arthur's proposal [31]

19. Issue service-type:  [33] OK to wait on Abstract Component work to
    provide a more concrete proposal?
        JM: Hoping when Gudge presents abstract component model
            -- might bring clarity on these issues and a proposal to resolve
        Sanjiva: Do have two issues on service-type - ACM won't resolve.
        Gudge: ACM may help us think about the issues

20. Issue remove-solicit-response-operations: Removing solicit-response
    and notifications.  [34] OK to schedule for FTF?
        Appropriate forum is F2F
        JM: David's presentation - describing issues
        David: Jeff and Gudge looked at it -- taking action to move forward 
          with this

ACTION: DavidB to do Solicit/Response presentation at September F2F

21. HTTP Binding Issues (6a, 41)
    Jeffrey recommends no change [35].
        JM: Put this top of agenda for next week
        Sanjiva: One week not adequate for this -- Sanjiva to post email
ACTION: Sanjiva to post email on issues 6a, 41
