The SOAP 1.2 namespace URIs you list are relevant to a working draft and 
Proposed Recommendation respectively. The latter appears to be used in the SOAP 
1.2 Recommendation too.

It's common for W3C specifications under development to use a different 
namespace URI for each draft (or at least for each draft where there are 
significant changes).
