I realize your concern whether this is actually what we specify but I
think you would agree that we *should* be able to answer the question as
follows:

"If the communicating parties use the SOAP HTTP binding with the
serialization defined by the "application/soap+xml" media type AND there
is a doctype II present then either one or both of the binding
implementation(s) do not follow the rules defined by that media type and
hence break the binding specification. In fact, if the parties use *any*
binding with the serialization defined by the "application/soap+xml"
media type AND there is a doctype II present then the same thing
follows."

Make sense?
