Sounds reasonable to me.

You meant to say the SOAP/HTTP binding as defined by XMLP and as
used by us in the WSDL->SOAP binding (wsoap:*), right?

These two rules would make @webMethod redundant given we already
have @wsoap:mep. We say now (following the rules of XMLP AFAIK) that
if @wsoap:mep=SOAP-R-R then the HTTP method must be POST and that
if @wsoap:mep=SOAP-Response then the HTTP method must be GET.

For those values the XMLP-defined SOAP/HTTP binding does not apply,
right? If so we have nothing to say about it .. at least as our
spec is today.

What exactly is the proposed value space of @webMethod?
