discarding incorrect namespaces

Section 3 states;

"[A SOAP Application] MUST discard messages that have incorrect
namespaces"

Shouldn't this say that it MUST generate a Fault?

Also, 'unsupported' seems more appropriate than 'incorrect'. Same
language in 4.4.1.

Finally, considering our versioning model, does it make sense to
upgrade

"A SOAP application SHOULD include the proper SOAP namespace on all
elements and attributes defined by SOAP in messages that it
generates."

to MUST, and strike

"... MAY process SOAP messages without SOAP namespaces as though they had
the correct SOAP namespaces."

This is in the context of all SOAP namespaces, not just the envelope,
but it seems prudent to clarify in some fashion.


[apologies if this ground has been covered before; a quick search of
the issues list didn't turn anything up]
