Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
issue as a CR002 [1].  The Working Group agreed to allow extensions on
import and include elements, although warning users that such extensions
do not appear in the component model (see
These changes are reflected in the latest version of the spec [2] and
schema [3].


Unless you let us know otherwise by 13 April, we will assume you agree
with the resolution of this issue.

Subject: Do <import> and <include> support extensibility elements?


I'd like to clarify which WSDL elements support extensibility elements. 

Part 1, section 6.1 Element based Extensibility states:
WSDL 2.0 allows namespace-qualified element information items whose
[namespace name] is NOT "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl" to appear among
the [children] of specific element information items whose [namespace
name] is "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl".

The word 'specific' suggests some WSDL elements do not support
extensibility elements. This is backed up by the WSDL 2.0 schema at
http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/wsdl20.xsd which indicates that all WSDL
2.0 elements except <import> and <include> support extensibility

However, in Part 1 all of the sections that describe the xml
representation for each WSDL element state that the [children] of the
WSDL element may contain:
Zero or more namespace-qualified element information items whose
[namespace name] is NOT "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl"

i.e. this text applies to <include> and <import> too, in sections 4.1
and 4.2, which seems to contradict the schema.

Is this correct? Can <include> and <import> have extensibility elements?

John Kaputin.
