Description Doug Davis 2009-01-14 00:09:31 UTC
While the WSDL of an endpoint can be used to advertise some aspects of the 
features it supports, it can not be used to indicate all of them.  For 
example, there is no way to list all of the supported MEX Dialects.

Define WS-Policy expression(s) for all of the variables/features of 
WS-MetadataExchange (that can not already be described by its WSDL) so 
that an endpoint can advertise which features/options a client can use. 
Note: this will require we define a new MEX Dialect (not related to the 
'mex' dialect currently defined by the mex spec).
