I believe that the spirit of the SOAP 1.1 specification was closer to
the idea of providing a mapping from the XML data model to an SML
Infoset.  With the benefit of experience, this now appears to have been
less satisfactory than if we had instead provided a mapping to XML
schema.

During my editorial rewrite of the SOAP Encoding section in terms of the
XML
Infoset it has struck me once again how much we actually reference XML
Schema in this part of the spec. We need to come down on one side or the
other. Either we are defining a mapping from the SOAP Data Model to an
XML
Schema OR we are defining a mapping from the SOAP Data Model to an XML
Infoset. It is very difficult to do a mixture of the two.
