Yes, the Binding component MUST have the {http cookies} property, but the 
XML attribute is optional.

This still leaves open what it means. If the property is true, does that 
mean the client must support cookies? Or does it just mean that the 
service sends cookies and the client can ignore them?

RE: Semantics of {http cookies} Property.

Hi Arthur,

Doesn't this mean that the component property is required to have a
value, but the XML representation can omit the whttp:cookies attribute?

Then, per table 6-9 the required value of {http_cookies} is FALSE.

That is how I read it.

Subject: Semantics of {http cookies} Property.

This came up at the interop event in Dinard:

1. The spec is unclear.[1] What is the meaning of the {http cookies}

Does is state whether the service will send cookies or whether the
client needs to understand cookies.

I recommend that it mean that the service uses cookies in some meaning
way and that the client will be unable to use the service effectively
unless it supports cookies.

2. The spec is inconsistent. It says Binding components MAY indicate
..., and also that the property is REQUIRED.

The XML attribute is optional, but the property is REQUIRED.
Therefore, a Binding  component MUST indicate...
