unclarity in adjuncts 5.9.6 - soap header block component fragid

Hi all,

finishing the implementation of the RDF mapping, I uncovered one more
small problem in the spec, this time in the adjuncts. 

Section 5.9.6 defines the fragment ID for a SOAP header block component.
It says:

wsdl.extension(http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap, 
        wsoap.header(parent/element declaration))

     1. parent is the pointer part of the {parent} component, as
        specified in WSDL Version 2.0 Part 1: Core Language.
     2. element declaration is the value of the {element declaration}
        property.

First, I expect that the "pointer part of the {parent} component" means
the wsdl.* xpointer part of the fragment identifier of the {parent}
component, without any xmlns parts which are moved before the
wsdl.extension part, right?

Second, point two needs to be clarified to say either that "element
declaration" is the QName that is the value of the {name} property of
the component that is the value of the {element declaration} property,
or that "element declaration" is the wsdl.elementDeclaration part of the
fragment identifier of the component referred to by the {element
declaration} property.

In other words, which is correct? I think A). I hope the formatting
survives in a useful form.

A.
xmlns(ns1=http://othernamespace.example/)
xmlns(ns2=http://schemanamespace.example/)
wsdl.extension(http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap,
               wsoap.header(wsdl.bindingFault(bindingname/ns1:faultname)
                            /ns2:element))

B.
xmlns(ns1=http://schemanamespace.example/)
wsdl.extension(http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap,
               wsoap.header(xmlns(ns1=http://othernamespace.example/)
                            wsdl.bindingFault(bindingname/ns1:faultname)
                            /ns1:element))

C.
xmlns(ns1=http://othernamespace.example/)
xmlns(ns2=http://schemanamespace.example/)
wsdl.extension(http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap,
               wsoap.header(wsdl.bindingFault(bindingname/ns1:faultname)
                            /wsdl.elementDeclaration(ns2:element)))

D.
xmlns(ns1=http://schemanamespace.example/)
wsdl.extension(http://www.w3.org/ns/wsdl/soap,
               wsoap.header(xmlns(ns1=http://othernamespace.example/)
                            wsdl.bindingFault(bindingname/ns1:faultname)
                            /wsdl.elementDeclaration(ns1:element)))


Since I'm asking for clarification, I believe it can be handled as
editorial, or it can be handled as errata, but I'd like to have an
answer before we go to Rec. 8-)
