I got a query today about which endpoints are available on the dynamics CRM 2011 platform, as I couldn't find the information in one place (it seems to be distributed all around the SDK documentation); I did a small summary and as usual put in here to benefit the folks ;)

btw: Here's a link to a compliance chart of WCF vs other web services platform than .NET.
