 Rich,
 we decided to propose ignoring rather than forbidding additional
attributes for the following reasons:
 1) smoother transition path from SOAP 1.1
 2) attributes like env:mustUnderstand and env:actor, which are
out-of-scope for Encoding, must be allowed to appear and be
effective on referencing accessors. These particular two
attributes will not be a good example if the proposed resolution
to #170 presented in [1], point 2, option b, passes. But Encoding
may be used in various situations where out-of-scope attributes
that do not affect the encoded data may appear.
 The proposal allows that. And yes, by referencing accessor I
mean b. 8-)
 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
