I think that depends on how you see the prohibition on attributes in SOAP
encoding. I see it as saying 'your data must be serialized as elements',
rather than 'you must not use any attributes at all'. Given that mU and role
are in the envelope namespace, I don't think this is a problem. If it were
we'd not be able to change encodings inside a serialization because the
encodingStyle attribute would not be legal either.
