I noticed this typo a couple of months ago. As the submission
request[1] points out, the title should read "Web Services Description
Language (WSDL) 1.1", the same way the h1 element does (in compliance

Since W3C does not modify documents after publication, the typo will

As you probably know, the Web Services Description Working Group is
developing a description language basing their work on WSDL 1.1.  So
there will be a Working Draft of a Web service description language in
the near future on which the joke will not apply anymore. :-)
