SOAP messages must be sent over HTTP/1.0 or HTTP 1.1?

From Ivan's notes p.62, it says "SOAP message must be sent using either HTTP/1.0 or HTTP/1.1, where HTTP/1.1 is preferred."
But from MZ's notes, it says "SOAP can use any transport protocol (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, SMTP, JMS, etc) " and "SOAP has the following features: Transport protocol independence."

I think SOAP can now be sent over any transport protocol, not just HTTP/1.0 or 1.1.

Any comments?

SOAP is indeed transport independent, and transport implementations other than HTTP exist - but they are used much less frequently.

I don't think anyone still uses HTTP 1.0 these days, for SOAP or anything else.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
