I think that section 3[1] which currently says:

   It MUST discard messages that have incorrect namespace information
   (see 4.4 SOAP Fault)

should be aligned on the Envelope Version Model section[2]:

   It MUST treat messages with incorrect namespace information as a
   version error (see 4.1.2 Envelope Versioning Model).

Note that appendix A, Version Transition From SOAP/1.1 to SOAP Version
1.2[3] has the same problem:

   If a message is received by a SOAP application in which the SOAP
   Envelope element is associated with a different namespace, the
   application MUST treat this as a version error and discard the
   message.

We should probably replace "and discard the message" by "(see 4.1.2
Envelope Versioning Model)".
