Speaking for myself, I'd prefer to just invent a new URI and have the XMLP 
workgroup document it, perhaps in the next update to SOAP.  It's surely 
not an incompatible change, and it allows us to keep the URI of the 
documentation separate from the URI of that which is being documented. 
Interestingly, a related discussion is ongoing on www-tag regarding RDDL

        Subject:        URI for the concept of SOAP MEP?

Dear XMLP WG, 8-)

in WS-Description WG we are working on an RDF mapping for the WSDL
components. The SOAP binding of WSDL points from WSDL operation to a
SOAP MEP to indicate which MEP will be used by the operation. For this
we use the MEP URIs from SOAP 1.2 specification, like
This is a correct and intended use, I believe.

For modeling purposes, we want to say that the WSDL SOAP binding
property soapMEP will point to any SOAP MEP, therefore we need to be
able to indicate the class that represents SOAP MEPs. Currently, we use 
for that, but this URI is WSDL-specific and that is wrong.

We intend to use instead the URI that points to the section 3.2 of SOAP
1.2 specification, which describes the concept of SOAP MEPs:

Can you please confirm that we may use this URI as the identifier of the
RDFS class of all SOAP MEPs? Or if you don't like this, can you please
provide us with a better URI?

We are asking you because the concept of a SOAP MEP is yours and
therefore you should be the ones to coin the URI to identify that

Best regards,

Jacek Kopecky
