I am having some trouble with the following paragraph from section 2.

"A SOAP message MUST NOT impose any XML schema processing (assessment and validation) requirement on the part of any receiving SOAP node. Therefore, SOAP REQUIRES that all attribute information items, whether specified in this specification or whether they belong to a foreign namespace be carried in the serialized SOAP envelope."

The part that is trouble some is after the second sentance especially the word "therefore."  The only thing that makes sense to me would be that if a schema defined a default value for an attribute that default couldn't be used since it must be in the serialized stream.  In any case it is causing for confusion here.
