After reading the 1.2 version spec for SOAP, I wish to renew 
previous concerns about Section 7.1 "RPC responses" [1]. 
Specifically, there seems to be no provision for the case of method 
signatures with a void return. As it stands, the first accessor in the 
response is assumed to contain or reference a return value. The 
situation results in confusion when the method signature contains 
a void return and one or more "out" parameters... the first accessor 
is treated as the return, rather than as the first "out" param.

This area needs clarification, as real world implementation 
experience has proven it to be troublesome.

The question: what is the representation for a response with a void 
return, possibly with "out" or "in,out" parameters?

The matter was placed on the the XMLP issues list and has id 
"16". [2]
