Right.

If there is no compelling need to make a data structure incompatible
with SOAP Encoding, then I am strongly in favor of making it possible to
"naively" and "obviously" use SOAP Encoding to express that data
structure as it moves from XML to a native programming language
representation and back again.

Making it a goal that core SOAP data structure are compatible with SOAP
Encoding does not mean that Encoding now becomes part of the core.
