I know I keep banging on about how ignoring unknowns is a 
'general expectation amongst many .. when processing XML',
but I was pleased to notice this morning that the 'many' includes
industry expert, Eric Newcomer:

"""
WSDL is (like a SOAP message) XML. 
And you can parse XML. 
You can transform XML. 
You can interpret XML and aggregate XML and split up XML, 
and of course process only what you can understand 
(and if there's something you don't understand just ignore it).
