3 Data Structure for SOAP Documents
SOAP documents that need to send international preferences SHOULD
reference the SOAP Feature described by this document and include the
<international> block in a header. When sent from the requester to a
provider, the header represents the preferences of the requester or
its client application. When sent in a response message from the
provider, the header represents the settings that the service used to
process the request.

s/in a header/in a SOAP header/ # would clarify for the casual reader
(slackers like me), as would

  <i18n:international soap:mustUnderstand="..." soap:actor:"...">

3.3 The TZ (Time Zone) Element

Are Olson IDs a known quantity? Can I send <tz>America/San_Diego</tz>
to you and know you'll understand it? The reference didn't make me
confident of that.

4 Data Structure for WSDL Documents
WSDL documents describe the capabilities and configuration of a
I'd say "WSDL describes the messages and invocation parameters of a
web service."

The policy that governs the operation of a particular service is
implemented as a WSDL Property:
What's the current state of features and properties?

5 Examples
Here are some document examples:
If it's a "document example", I'd make up a service and write down the
entire xml document. That's good for the folks who learn best by

This is an interesting step. Has W3C defined any headers before? Is it
worth defining an equivilant HTTP Extension? Probably not -- unless I
can convince more of the REST world that their salvation lies in HTTP
