I'm not sure how that would be an advantage for people using wanting to  
implement this API in some obscure language. At some point when we get  
responseBody this will become a relatively simple API to do HTTP stuff  
with. I don't think we should mandate XML support for that. It makes sense  
to support it though, hence it already is a "SHOULD" for fostering  
interoperability.

Ah, I see what you mean. I removed "some version" and mentioned namespaces  
as well.

Namespaces are now called out.

Hmm. I didn't feel it was needed. However, it's changed now.

Thanks!
