Comment 1 Doug Davis 2010-09-27 14:10:24 UTC

Modify the GetWSDLResponse:

Current text:
    When the GetWSDLResponse element contains any child elements, the first element MUST either be the WSDL metadata document, or a reference to the WSDL metadata document, of the endpoint. Any extension elements MUST appear after the WSDL document/reference. The absence of any child elements indicates that the endpoint does not have any WSDL document, or additional metadata, associated with it. 

Add before the "Any extension elements..." sentence:
While an endpoint MAY choose to return a reference to the WSDL, it is 
STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that the WSDL metadata document itself be returned.  
If a requester would like a reference to the WSDL then it can use the 
GetMetadata operation specifying the appropriate Content URI.
