Dear Mr Harold,

You raised an issue ( classed number 425[1] ) against the SOAP 1.2 Part
1 Proposed Recommendation[2] regarding comments in SOAP messages. The
working group considered this issue on their telephone conference of
2003-05-14 and decided to close the issue with no action. The grounds
for this decision are as follows:

1.	As you observe there is no change here between the CR[3] and
PR[2] specification documents in terms of their position regarding
Comment Information Items in a SOAP message infoset.

2.	SOAP messages can still be processed using standard XML parsers.

3.	There are any number of other things one could put in an XML
Infoset that would cause that Infoset to be illegal per the SOAP
specification. For example, the [document element] having a [local name]
property with a value other than 'Envelope'.

4.	There is no requirement that SOAP messages be creatable/editable
with all existing XML tools.

Regards

Martin Gudgin
For the XML Protocol Working Group
