The problem is that doing that allows different <service> elements
to implement different service types. I'd rather require that a
single ("complete") WSDL doc implements one serviceType. That makes
tooling a lot easier (given a single WSDL u always generate one thing)
and also clarifies the role of WSDL as being a language for describing
a single service rather than just a bag of services that share a common
