Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
issue as a CR004 [1].  The Working Group does not see a need for an
<appInfo> element, as WSDL (unlike schema) is extensible at arbitrary
points.  The benefits of <appInfo> over an open model are not apparent,
despite having this paradigm deployed in XML Schema for some time now.

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

we have an open content model and the benefits of a closed model+appinfo
have are not apparent (even after several years of deployment of this
model in XSD).

Would it be good to have an explicit <appInfo> for the <documentation>
node for the WSDL 2.0 document ?
