Issue 29: "Exist non-serialisable data models?" from [1] implies that there _might_ be data models that cannot be encoded using the SOAP 1.2 data model.  

When this issue was created I suggested [2] that it was only a true issue if someone could bring forward such a non-serialisable data model.  I would like to propose we now close this issue (with no further action) based on the following resolution text:

"The current SOAP/1.2 model is capable of representing directed graphs as well as object graphs and enables a recipient to deserialize an XML instance to recreate those graphs. It is not clear whether there are other data models that potentially are interesting to serialize but not representable within the SOAP data model.  Since no examples of non-serialisable data models have been brought to the attention of the XML Protocol WG, it is proposed to resolve this issue with no further changes to SOAP 1.2."
