The WG would like to solicit your comments on whether we should
support references within a WSDL document with just an NCName
instead of always requiring a QName. 

Here's the issue from the latest part1 document:

<issue id="issue-references-with-qname">
  <head>Should intra-namespace references using only localParts be 
        supported?</head>
  WSDL 1.1 requires all references to be QNames. For example, a 
  reference to a portType from a binding element must always use 
  a QName even if that portType is in the same namespace and even
  if it is defined in the same document. It would be convenient 
  to support local part references for intra-namespace references.
