I think you want xsi:type for compatibility with the schema recommendation 
(though SOAP uses it even when schemas are not in force.)  This way you 
can assert at the schema level what the type of an element is.  Indeed, 
one could imagine doing things in the schema like fixing the value of the 
SOAP-ENC:arrayType attribute.  You could then make, I think, a schema 
level arrayOfInt type.  Schema tools then understand the xsi:type;  SOAP 
level tools understand the relationship of the two attrs.
