The wording of section 7.1 of the SOAP spec. doesn't seem to
allow for RPC calls that don't have return values.

For example, the fifth list item in section 7.1 says:

  The method response is viewed as a single struct containing an 
  accessor for the return value and each [out] or [in/out] parameter. 
  The first accessor is the return value followed by the parameters in 
  the same order as in the method signature. 

Instead, it should probably using wordig like "for any return value"
or "the return value, if any, ..."
