Big +1

As others have said on this subject, if someone wants to place some
details of how they are performing dispatching in the WSDL, that's fine;
I'm not opposed to an optional feature or extension of that sort.

I'm strongly opposed to mandating this, because I've had to deal
frequently with customer-generated WSDL for which such a required feature
would be meaningless.  Failing to deliver what the [potential] users of
the spec require strikes me as a Really Bad Idea.
