SOAP section 5 is meant to permit what XML schemas permits.  SOAP does
not elaborate on all the possible legal serializations because XML
schemas does.

When you said "the integer 12" do you mean that the element <i> is
defined in an XML Schema to be of type
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#integer?

If so then why is not the answer to your question found in the XML
Schema specifications?  And maybe the Section 5.1 serialization rules
should simply permit what XML Schema permits?
