I'm at a loss here. While some vocabulary that defined
MEPs with angle-brackets might be a good thing(tm), it isn't
at all clear to me that it is needed. SOAP1.2 defines
MEPs and assigns URIs to these formal definitions. It also
recommends in the binding framework that MEPs be named
with a URI[1].

I think that rather than treat this through extensibility
in WSDL, that a binding identify the MEPs it supports
with a URI (or qname I suppose, but we may need to do some
coordination on that).

What am I missing?
