There was strong opposition to using those heuristics.  I just wrote a
couple of paragraphs reiterating those arguments, but I guess I'll spare
you that, on mature reflection.  :-)

We made the labels of messages optional.  The pattern URI is required,
in all cases.  Order of input and output elements in the operation
element is not significant.
