I am making a proposal and agreeing with Sanjiva that we should not be 
restrictive. Typically, we are not restrictive in our specs especially 
for things that are extensions to the model.

Since Feature and property are such an important area, I am very concerned that we are making WSDL unnecessarily complicated while only provide a partial solution.

That is the whole point, in order not to provide a partial solution, we 
should not put restrictions and extend it to the service element. The 
use case is very simple. Instead of applying a particular feature to a 
specific binding, it may apply to all endpoints in a service. If I were 
to publish an OperationName feature,  it could easily belong  to a 
service element as to indicate that it applies to all the endpoints.
