Since WSDL is the Web Services Description Language, it is natural to make 
its root element <description>.  A WSDL document describes a Web service. 
The document is therefore a description. 

This change would make our names more consistent with XSD, i.e it is XML 
Schema language its root element is <schema>. 

The Definitions component should be called the Description component.
