Hey Glen:

> WSDL is about hints.  

No, I do not believe that WSDL is a hint, it is a contract. No-one sees
IDL as a "hint", and contract definitions like WSDL aren't a hint
either. It may contain information which constitutes a "hint" but the
document as a whole is not a hint, it is a contract entered into between
both consumer and provider.

If either party sends screwy messages then they have invalidated the
contract.
