 Henrik,
 the difference is that Gudge adds the unnecessary notion of 
graph root into the data model and dismisses the root attribute 
for the wrong reasons while not taking into account the SOAP 1.1 
rules that might survive and cause problems.
 In terms of text changes the difference is small, in terms of 
the rationale it's bigger.
 Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
