This document is hard to read, so please excuse me if I misunderstand.

Who is "I" here? R085 and R071 are completely unrelated to each other.

There is nothing there that would allow me to declare (e.g.) that a <po>
element is of type AnyURI and that the URI *referent* is a resource with
particular operations. R071 is about allowing WSDL fragments to contain
links to other WSDL fragments. But WSDL-described resources must also be
able to contain strongly-typed links to other WSDL-described resources.
