I agree. The task, then, is to enumerate the set of things for which no
schema descriptions are available. First stab: arrays, unions.

Noah, as your distinction between "the legal forms of a message" and "the
interpretation of those forms" suggests, haven't we left the realm of
encodingStyle and crossed over into semantics. Perhaps we need to have
Martin define a set of "type attributes" for SOAP. ;>)
