I just noticed that the wording in section 2.1.1 about the targetNamespace 
document would (inadvertently?) prohibit two logical WSDL documents[1] from 
defining the same service.  I assume this wording was unintentional, since 
there was a significant thread[2] about whether we should try to make this 
this prohibition, and the WG did not decide to do so.

I suggest fixing this with the following wording changes.  In the existing 
section 2.1.1 sentence:
[[
If the service description is split into multiple documents (which may be 
combined as needed via 4.1 Including Descriptions), then the 
targetNamespace attribute information item  SHOULD resolve to a master 
document which includes all the WSDL documents for that namespace.
]]

Simply change:
s/If the service/If a service/
s/for that namespace./needed for that service description./
