This seems like a shockingly bad idea....  How could you possibly rely
on the WSP framework to express requirements if you took this kind of
position?  And why do we even bother to have wsp:Optional if
everything's "really" optional?

I'm agog.  Please tell me I misunderstood your comment here somehow and
that you aren't really advocating this.

Thanks,
