Andrew Layman suggests:

I like this, thank you, but with one possible exception.   Don't we need 
to say 

"A SOAP/XMLP application SHOULD namespace-qualify, all elements and 
attributes defined by SOAP/XMLP in messages that it generates.   If 
qualified, the namespace used MUST be the correct one provided by this 
specification for the element or attribute."

I'd be happy to see this wording improved, but I don't think yours 
strictly rules out the case that I do something really stupid and put some 
arbitrary namespace on, for example, the body element.
