This is my pet issue against WSDL:

WSDL 1.1 uses XML Schema to describe data in, for example, SOAP 
1.1 encoding. XML Schema is not really good at describing graph 
data model strictly, therefore WSDL 1.1 has the "encoded" use of 
schemas but it does not specify concretely how schemas are dealt 
with.

If we want to keep "encoded" use, IMHO we'll have to specify how 
XML Schema schemas are understood in connection with SOAP data 
model. AFAIK, this has been a big interop issue.
