Yes, We're aiming for WS-I compliance, so this is consistent with what
we were thinking. And we consciously want to avoid multiparts, for the
reasons you outlined (below, but chopped).
But I can't find any examples of current practice -- what works well,
what doesn't, etc. Would've thought this would be a common pattern,
As per Joseph's thought, I looked at ws-dev
(http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Browse/Threaded/ws-dev), but it
seems that list died off about 2 years ago ... Is it revived somewhere else?
