You seem to be implying that the SOAP MEPs would somehow point to 
the WSDL abstract MEPs, possibly through text in the SOAP 1.2 
specification referring to the WSDL MEPs. Whilst this sounds 
entirely legitimate and probably the best solution in the long 
run, this may not be possible until the next version of SOAP. 
SOAP is currently in Candidate Recommendation and I have the bad 
feeling that changing the SOAP spec now as you suggest would set 
XMLP back to Working Draft, and cause considerable delays. Given 
the expectations of the industry regarding SOAP 1.2, I think we 
should make our best to minimize such late changes to the SOAP 
specification, if possible. I would therefore strongly encourage 
us to look at a design which does not require modifications of 
the actual SOAP MEPs.

I apologize in advance if I have been reading too much in your
