At the face to face we decided to accept Gudge's proposed resolution
for issue 139 (nondeterminism of schema for WSDL 2.0), letting the
editors come up with the appropriate schema gobbledygook.

Here's a quick reminder of the issue:

Over beers, Gudge and I discussed a slight improvement over an element
wildcard, i.e.

   <xs:complexType name='DefinitionsType' >
         Please refer to the WSDL 2.0 specification for
	additional constraints on the contents of this type.
       <xs:extension base='wsdl:ExtensibleDocumentedType' >
         <xs:choice minOccurs='0' maxOccurs='unbounded' >
           <xs:element ref='wsdl:import' />
           <xs:element ref='wsdl:include' />
           <xs:element ref='wsdl:types'/>
           <xs:element ref='wsdl:interface' />
	  <xs:element ref='wsdl:binding' />
	  <xs:element ref='wsdl:service' />
           <xs:any namespace='##other' processContents='lax' />
	<xs:attribute name='targetNamespace' type='xs:anyURI' use='required' />

This way at least we make it easier to spot which WSDL elements
can appear under definitions. Plus, the order they're listed in
is also intended to suggest the correct one.

I modified the schema in CVS to use the definition given above,
please let me know if there are any problems with it.
