Should WSDL say anything about whitespace in SOAP:Body?

Hi, 

it was noted on the soapbuilders list that there are some interop
problems regarding whitespace handling in SOAP Body. I believe this is
an issue for WSDL because for SOAP, whatever is in the Body, belongs to
the application.

WSDL describes in its SOAP binding what the Body will look like,
therefore it probably should say something about whether whitespace
characters can be children of the Body and how they are treated. 

I consider this an issue against the SOAP binding.
