I think this is a slippery slope .. clearly there are many message
exchange patterns in life. WSDL 1.1 picks a few "standard" ones
for direct syntactic support and leaves others upto richer
languages like orchestration languages.

Adding support for multiple and optional outputs can be done with
allowing messages to be defined in terms of messages too. Again,
that's another slippery slope ... where does WSDL end and orchestration
start?
