WS-MetaDataExchange and WS-Transfer

WS-Mex, also known as WS-MetadataExhange, was updated this month.

However, in an odd move the spec does not reflect the WS-Transfer udpates:

Am I missing something? I thought this was the entire point of WS-Transfer? Don't get me wrong, I still think it is absolutely hysterical that the 'Metadata' spec is mostly hard-coded and doesn't use metadata!

I've been thinking about replacing the WS-MetadataExchange spec with my own. Here it goes:

1. Append "?WSDL" to the end of a call to a valid port.
2. Expect a WSDL to be returned.
3. The end.
