elementFormDefault="qualified" in WSDL Schema..

All,

The WSDL Schema ([1] or [2]) sets the elementFormDefault="qualified".
This, AFAIK requires each element to qualified in the instance
documents, requiring one to use ns qualifiers with many of the elements
defined in the WSDL spec (<wsdl:message ..> <wsdl:service ..>
<wsdl:portType ..> etc. where the namespace
wsdl="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/wsdl/").  Most of the WSDL instance
examples in the spec violate this. Why do we need to keep this? Can we
change elementFormDefault="unqualified" and be done with it? Or am I
mistaken here?

Regards, Prasad
