Of course; IBM too cares that SOAP/<whatever> as well as other bindings
are indeed quite possible in WSDL for MEPs that are in-spec as well
as not in-spec.

I'm not so sure that giving a URI and writing a few sentences achieves
that however. I would much prefer to see an example in the primer
going the whole nine yards: define a MEP, provide a binding and discuss
how it works. That seems a hell of a lot more complete and convincing
than our just taking the baby step of coming up with a URI!
