How can any spec say something about those who don't understand the
spec? I'm confused.

I'm again confused; while a statement like "this spec must be
implementable as efficiently as possible" is reasonable (and
motherhood-and-apple-pie IMO), speaking specifically about 
buffer allocation seems rather pointed.

WS-Security only applies to SOAP envelopes. This requirement would
hence have the effect of precluding MIME/DIME style packaging ..
