+1. I don't object to people being able to write WSDL where dispatch is
'obvious' (e.g unique GEDs ). In fact, I fully expect many WSDLs to be
written using unique GEDs. But don't FORCE me to write my WSDL a
particular way, or, as Amy points out, I'll have to invent a nonsense
feature just to satisfy a nonsense requirement.
