Thanks for your comment.  The WS Description Working Group tracked this
issue as a CR017 [1].  The Working Group felt that RPC and IRI/multipart
styles are different enough that attribute exstenibility consistency was
not required.  Specifically, in RPC style serialization, extension
attributes appear on the wire (and thus are useful in enabling
signatures and so forth), whereas in the IRI and multipart styles, the
data is extracted from the XML and reserialized.  Any attributes would
be lost before they manifested on the wire.  Having these invisible
attributes would serve no purpose and might cause confusion.


Unless you let us know otherwise by 13 April, we will assume you agree
with the resolution of this issue.

I reviewed the assertions in Section 4, Predefined Styles. I did not see
any issues.  I would like to make an observation, though. This is
independent of whether the assertions are accurate/well captured. 
We decided to allow extension attributes that are not part of the
signature for RPC style. I noticed that neither the IRI style nor the
multipart style have a similar allowance. I believe we included this
allowance to RPC style to put metadata assertions as attributes for the
signature. Similar metadata may be useful for the other styles, but I do
not have any use cases.
