Agreed, so the offending paragraph in [1] would then read:

"A SOAP node MUST ensure that all element information items and 
attribute information items in messages that it generates are correctly 
namespace qualified. A SOAP node MUST be able to process SOAP namespace 
information in messages that it receives. It MUST treat messages with 
incorrect namespace information as a version error (see 4.1.2 Envelope 
Versioning Model)."

I looks to me like the "problem text" is in a quote from the SOAP 1.1 
specification and so should be left as-is.
