So you mean you can't have a WSDL namespace that ends with "#"?  (I'm not
sure I understood you.)  If so, can I go find out where/why?  (I know many
WSDL WG folks are on this list, so feel free to send me a note off-list.)

Nah, it's cool.  Anytime you need a URI within your namespace, you just
have to come up with a fragment-style name.  As long as the "base" URI
is dereferencable, then all URIs within that namespace are, too.  That's
often a lot easier to maintain than adding new "pathname" components.
I'd argue that if the URI is really "part of" the namespace, it's
architectually correct, too.  And in the "cute hack" category, it gives
you an easy qname<->nsuri-localname mapping.
