I think I would have a more mitagated response:

The approach by itself does not allow the equivalent of unreferenced 
attachments (you may however achieve this by including an attachment in 
an "unreferenced" SOAP header).

However, depending on the method used for carrying the binary, you may 
include there unreferenced attachments. For exemple, if you are using 
MIME to carry the binary, nothing precludes adding a MIME part not 
referenced in the SOAP envelope.

Hope this helps,
