Glen, I intentionally omitted the word guarantee.

Just as we cannot give any guarantee that the import will be available,
just as we cannot give any guarantee that WSDLs over 10k will be
processed, we cannot provide guarantees (or any kind of simple language,
it seems) about those imports. On the other hand, if I was implementing
a WSDL processor, I think I'd make that case possible almost
