(this is an issue I opened)

The XML protocol workgroup opened Candidate Recommendation Issue 421 [1],
which was to remove some seeming contradictions regarding the treatment of
comments in SOAP 1.2 Envelopes.  The workgroup has agreed to resolve the
issue as follows:

* We note that our resolution to last call issue [2] #355 the workgroup
agreed that "comments are allowed anywhere in the [document element] but
not before or after that element."  It also clarified the rules for
relaying comments through an intermediary.

* We have concluded that the decision on 355 was incompletely implemented,
and in particular that Chapter 5 of part 1 is to be updated to reflect this
decision.  We specifically have agreed to adapt the text quoted above,
suitably modified to reflect Infoset terminology, etc.

* We considered and rejected proposals to make optional transmission of
comments by bindings.  Accordingly, bindings MUST transmit comments if they
appear in the message Infoset.  This was the status quo, insofar as
bindings are already required to transmit the entire Infoset.  We rejected
a proposal to add a "note" clarifying the requirement to transmit comments.

As the originator of this issue, I hereby signify my complete satisfaction
with this resolution.  Thank you.
