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

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 elements.

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.
