Well, that would certainly resolve my issue! 8-)  But I'm not
suggesting that WSDL be restricted to state transfer, only that for a
given service, that the service be able to specify which it's using
(fwiw, this is closely related to issue 64, but more general).

But sure, I'm also hoping that by explaining the differences between
message exchange and document exchange, that folks will begin to see
some of the value in REST, and that it's useful for more than just
