 Henrik,
 it may be so, but in WS-Attachments there is an example of how 
an attachment is referred to from SOAP Encoding data (example 2), 
and it uses the way introduced by SOAP With Attachments.
 If this is really just a simple example that doesn't want to 
guide anyone on how attachments are referred to from SOAP 
Encoding, then I believe it should be changed to an example that 
really just shows a piece of XML that is not SOAP Encoding and 
that references the attachment, something like:

 <ns:claim>
   <ns:photo attachment="uuid:..."/>
 </ns:claim>

 My concern is that if you show the linking mechanism introduced
by SwA, you should either define the mechanism (presumably for
SOAP 1.2, too) or link to SwA.
 My preference would be that WS-Attachments defines how 
attachments are referred to from SOAP Encoding (both 1.1 and 1.2) 
data.
 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
