Mike, thanks for your input. I would suggest further amendments to your text,
and in particular removing the second sentence since typing information may be
provided outside the target resource, for example directly within the SOAP
enveloppe, even for non-XML resources albeit in a non-standard fashion:

"This specification does not constrain the type of resource that can be
referenced through the <att>href</att> attribute information item. In the case
of an XML resource, the type MAY be defined by the <att>xsi:type</att>
attribute information item or by an associated XML Schema. For non-XML
resources, other typing means need to be used, although the specification of
such typing means is outside the scope of this specification."
