Yes, cmsoap:soapFaultSubcodes for instance.  But I do now feel that
fixing Woden's id-null issue will probably moot this point.

If that is ALWAYS true - empty = absent - then that's fine, but I
thought there were cases where empty != absent?

The spec equates an empty property and an absent property.  I'm finding
a few places in the interchange format where Woden generates an empty
property, e.g. <elementDeclarations/>, while I simply omit this element.


Seems like the simplest solution would be to canonicalize such that
empty properties (which may be all empty elements with no attributes)
away - i.e. delete them during canonicalization.  Does that sound
