Some data has a natural name that is not legal XML.  For example, a C++
class data member  "int C::myint = 3" .  Should SOAP be able to handle
this in a friendly manner?  If so, one possiblity might be to define a
SOAP-ENC:realName attribute, which contains a text string of the "real"
name, and a SOAP-ENC:nameEncoding attribute which contains a URI
identifying how the realName is encoded.  The default could be
"url-quoted" or some such.
