Thanks for your response.

The suggestion below seems to contradict the principle of early
normalization specified in the Character Model. However, as the
examination of content is outside the scope of SOAP 1.2, and therefore
the normalization of the content is irrelevant to SOAP 1.2, we can agree
the issue is resolved.

However, at the time the XML Protocol Working Group is ready to consider
operations that require examination of content, the I18N working group
would like to discuss normalization with you and consider ideas for
solutions that also meet the goals of early normalization.
