Thanks for raising this issue.  The WG agreed that the schema needs to
be fixed to indicate that extensibility elements are allowed on import
and include elements.  We are attempting to put this in place prior to
our publication of the Candidate Recommendation.

Subject: Do <import> and <include> support extensibility elements?


I'd like to clarify which WSDL elements support extensibility elements. 

Part 1, section 6.1 Element based Extensibility states:
WSDL 2.0 allows namespace-qualified element information items whose
[namespace name] is NOT "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl" to appear among
the [children] of specific element information items whose [namespace
name] is "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl".

The word 'specific' suggests some WSDL elements do not support
extensibility elements. This is backed up by the WSDL 2.0 schema at
http://www.w3.org/2005/08/wsdl/wsdl20.xsd which indicates that all WSDL
2.0 elements except <import> and <include> support extensibility

However, in Part 1 all of the sections that describe the xml
representation for each WSDL element state that the [children] of the
WSDL element may contain:
Zero or more namespace-qualified element information items whose
[namespace name] is NOT "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/wsdl"

i.e. this text applies to <include> and <import> too, in sections 4.1
and 4.2, which seems to contradict the schema.

Is this correct? Can <include> and <import> have extensibility elements?

John Kaputin.
