I would like to propose an issue on the requirement for all portTypes to be
named-operation oriented.

There are significant efforts in several industry/semi-vertical standards
bodies that define business payload content through structures where all
message intentionality is defined directly as part of the payload. Taking
the view that the WSDL name attribute on operation is intended to reflect
the intentionality of the message (which I believe is the popular view)
fundamentally presents core model difference and appears can only result in
unnatural representations at best using WSDL. In my mind, named operations
on a Service is a key aspect to Service Orientation, but there is
significant momentum in industry groups operating outside this orientation

I believe this to be a significant hurdle of WSDL adoption for groups
operating under this type of design, where all message intentionality is an
intricate part of the payload structure.

I'm not sure of the details for issue submission and thank you for this
