Looks good. However, I think the main movitation is for QName resolution 
(as opposed to embedding WSDL fragments in other XML documents), i.e. an 
XML document may contain no WSDL fragment but instead simply desire to 
refer to a component via a QName.

Also, it might be wothwhile to state that in the list of URI pairs, the 
namespace MUST be an absolute URI, but the location MAY be relative. If 
relative then the usual rules apply, i.e. the document must establish a 
base URI, e.g. the document URI or use XML Base.

wsdli:wsdlLocation attribute


I've written up the WSDL location attribute stuff; see:



I looked at the description in XSD [1], but that didn't quite
seem like the kinda Swahili we want to use. So I came up with
a variation. Please help edit/clarify/re-write.
