Out of scope.  A feature/property that defines access control could be
written.

A WSDL document is an instance (concrete, single example) of WSDL (which
abstractly defines all possible examples or instances).  Possibly the
wording needs to change.

No, it doesn't mean include.  It means embed.  Or inline.  Just as we
allow embedding/inlining of W3C XML Schema in the [types] element.  We
do not permit inclusion of any schema language (WSDL is not a schema
language; all schemas must be imported and assigned to a namespace).

Note that several of these are stylistic issues, particularly for those
places in the text in which the singular is used as a generic ("drawn
from some type system" "categories of component" "some technology
specific binding"), this should probably not change if it is the natural
style of the editor(s) and is used consistently.

Many systems have cataloging infrastructure; they may be able to produce
a schema based solely on its namespace.
