Ronald, thanks for pointing out this subtle, but important point. I will

Subject: comment: documentation scenario and requirement

Quick comment on the requirements working draft... I did
not see anything in the scenarios and requirements
around the use of the <documentation> element. Don't think
its very controversial, we just want to make sure the
Schema for <wsdl:documentation> remains open.
At least one of the current WSDL compilers
silently fails when <documentation> elements contain markup,
so a test case covering this would be nice.

Suggested requirement:

The content model of <documentation> must be open to allow
people to insert markup of their choice.

Reason:  Current practice
We have written XSLT scripts that harvest those elements,
as well as contextual information, to generate documentation
which follows the xmlspec DTD. Others may want to go direct
to XHTML, or to other DTDs such as DocBook. Explanations of
messages, parts, ... may need multiple paragraphs or want to
use things like bulleted or numbered lists. The spec should
let people use whatever markup in their documentation that they
