I think your wording is excellent!

As you and others have said, WSDL needs to support this too and in fact
I bugged them about it months ago. It just occurred to me, however, that
with SOAP going to REC much earlier than WSDL, we can effect a change in
thinking and behaviour much faster by doing it in SOAP. Also, SOAP and
WSDL are still separable and some people will use SOAP without WSDL.
