Hi all, 8-) 

this is to inform you that the XMLP WG has decided to close the Last
Call issue 298 [1] by removing the array representation from the SOAP
RPC Representation, sections 4.2.1, 4.2.2 [2,3]. Also, mentions of this
representation will be removed from sectsion 4 a 4.2.3 [5,6].

The rationale: the WG has agreed with the initiator of the issue that
the array representation is unnecessary to achieve interoperable RPC
using SOAP. Currently, WSDL doesn't support normative description of RPC
services with positional parameters; furthermore, implementors from
various member companies have indicated that they would welcome removing
the array representation of RPC in SOAP. Lastly, array representation
caused some interoperability problems recorded in the soapbuilders
archive [4]. 

Best regards, 
                   Jacek Kopecky
