History:  FWIW, I was involved in consideration of this issue for the 
design of 1.1.  There, we explicitly decided that a receiver was expected 
to understand the QName in the body, and from that would understand any 
conventions associated with the use of that body.  I agree with Henrik 
that it's circular (and unnecessary) to model a misunderstood Body QName 
differently for RPC than for any other use of the Body.  Not recognizing 
that it's a purchase order (presumed message style) is no different than 
not recognizing getStockQuote (presumed RPC style), IMO.  Only when you 
recognize it do you understand whether there are good mappings to the RPC 
method/args style (and as Henrik points out, the degree to which you 
actually do a nice binding to a programming language is completely private 
to your endpoint.)
