The publication of XML 1.1 in February 2004 started a discussion in the
XMLP WG about the meaning of SOAP 1.2 being infoset-based, as well as
compatibility on the wire depending on the level of XML used.

It has been decided that the current SOAP 1.2 HTTP binding will be
restricted to XML 1.0 to ensure maximum compatibility with existing
implementation (ie: the one made prior the introduction of XML 1.1), while
the core of SOAP 1.2 will continue to allow the whole character range of
the Infoset, and let the binding decide what can be serialized or not.

As this issue might also have an impact on the WSDL drafts, the XMLP WG
decided to notify this group about this issue and the way we resolved
this.
The list of changes from XML1.0 to XML1.1 can be found at [1]
The infoset definition of allowable characters can be found at [2]
