Micah,

The XML Protocol WG has decided to close issue 356 [1] raised by you by
changing the MUST requirement for namespace qualification of SOAP Body
content to a SHOULD with a descriptive note explaining the reason for
the SHOULD. The resolution text which will be applied to Part1 5.3.1
"SOAP Body child Element" is the following:

* * * * * 

Zero or more information items in its [children] property. Child element
information items SHOULD be namespace qualified.

NOTE: namespace qualified elements tend to produce messages whose
interpretation is less ambiguous than those with unqualified elements.
The use of unqualified elements is therefore discouraged.

* * * * * 

We hope you find this resolution acceptable. If not then please send
your concerns to the xml-dist-app@w3.org mailing list [2] indicating the
issue number of the issue in the subject.

Thanks,

Henrik Frystyk Nielsen
