Speaking as a user, it's clear that BP 1.1 is the target to hit this
month. SOAP 1.2 maybe some day.

I don't believe WS-I explicitly forbids a web services engine from
supporting SOAP encoding. It just doesn't address it - if you publish
a SOAP encoded service then WS-I isn't going to have anything to say
about how it should work, and that service isn't going to be WS-I
compliant. The underlying engine (Axis) may still be fully BP 1.1.

If you do go this route it should be the default behaviour,
particularly for clients. In my practical experience interop is worse
than it was three years ago. But WS-I seems to be the only way out of
the weeds.
