Hi Noah,

Is it true that in a rpc encoded message that the Body can contain one and
only one serialization root, i.e., the method wrapper element?  If not true,
then is the message actually "document encoded" and not "rpc encoded" ?  If
this is true (one serialization root for rpc), then does this require all
non-serialization roots be marked with SOAP-ENC:root="0"?

Thx,

-Matt
