      Hi Simon,

      You're right, I think I'm confusing SwA with the more general MIME
      packaging of the sort found in the example in the MIME binding
      section of the WSDL 1.1 spec.

      So document/encoded and rpc/encoded SOAP operations would
      be fair game. As for MIME types how about:

      text/plain
      text/xml
      image/jpg

      as a starting point? If a suite of operations could be defined, they
      could be packaged as group for interop testing.

      As for RPC, I suppose the formula "echoGIF()", "echoXML()", etc.
      might serve? Any ideas for the document messages?

        Somewhat related to this, Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME)
        is now available as an IETF Internet Draft [1]. Please send any comments
        to the public mailing list [3]. Archives are available at [2].

        Abstract

        Direct Internet Message Encapsulation (DIME) is a lightweight,
        binary message format that can be used to encapsulate one or more
        application-defined payloads of arbitrary type and size into a
        single message construct. Each payload is described by a type, a
        length, and an optional identifier. Both URIs and MIME media type
        constructs are supported as type identifiers. The payload length is

        an integer indicating the number of octets of the payload. The
        optional payload identifier is a URI enabling cross-referencing
        between payloads. DIME payloads may include nested DIME messages or

        chains of linked chunks of unknown length at the time the data is
        generated. DIME is strictly a message format, provides no concept
        of a connection or of a logical circuit, and does not address head-
        of-line problems.

        Thanks,

        Henrik Frystyk Nielsen
