I believe we already have this.

We have two namespace URIs;

If they're children of Header or Body they MUST be namespace qualified and
the namespace URI cannot be http://www.w3.org/2002/06/soap-envelope

If they are children of Detail then they do not have to be namespace
qualified. If they are namespace qualified it can be with any namespace URI.

IIRC many of us argued this to death on XML-DEV about a year ago. I wasn't
convinced then and I don't think I am now either.
