 Hi all. 8-)
 The ETF hereby presents a proposal for resolving issue #171.
First, let me show the issue:

 An example for illustration of the problem:
	<a xsi:type="string" id="1"    >3</a>
	<b xsi:type="int"    href="#1"/>
 The problem is: what is the type of b?

 The proposal is: "SOAP Encoding processors MUST ignore
attributes on the referencing accessor except for the following
list of attributes: href, enc:position, xml:base."

 The current spec does not say anything on this matter.

 In transition from SOAP/1.1 to SOAP 1.2, if this proposal
passes, the implementations will need to make sure they don't
send any useful data encoded in attributes on referencing
accessors (because such location doesn't make sense for the
data).

 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
