+1. The name attribute is not well defined at best.

This is somewhat related to the "targetNamespace" issue that Gudge
posted about.

<issue id="issue-remove-optional-name-of-definition">
  <head>Should we remove the optional name attribute of
  &lt;definitions&gt;?</head>

  WSDL 1.1 has an optional attribute on definitions which is defined
  as being used to provide a lightweight form of documentation. I would
  like to remove that as its not clear that that has been useful or 
  used.

Can we get consensus on removing this? I haven't seen any real use
of this attribute so far.

Sanjiva.
