I don't think it is a naive comment at all.
In fact, I strongly agree with Roger and
I support the idea that the WG should 
seriously consider to toss the section 5, 
or to put it in a different (non mandatory)

The way I wrap the internal data of my application
(PL/SQL or Cobol for example because I am a database person)
into an XML document is my own internal business,
and I think it is inappropriate for a W3C WG to
standardize on this. In fact, section 5 does not help
me at all in this task, it just provides noise that
makes my task more difficult.

From my own experience, none of the companies that
I know or work with seriously consider to use the
information in Section 5 when they map their internal
data into Soap message bodies. Thinking that
 they will do is naive.

My 3 cents and a half,
