Following up on Gudge's proposal [2] and on at least one previous thread
[3] I am wondering whether an alternative solution is to entirely drop
the encodingStyle attribute. The reason why this may not be such a
strange thought is that:

A) Nobody seems to change encoding style in the middle of a graph

B) Given the confusion of where to put it in SOAP/1.1, nobody seem to
rely on the information but seem to get along fine without it

It also seems somewhat strange that the attribute is defined as part of
the envelope given that we don't say anything about encodings in part 1.

Any reason for keeping it? Comments? Flames?
