taken, but this really is "eating your own dog food" given most
folks publish their WSDL at a HTTP/S URI (even if that is indexed
using something like UDDI). It might be nice if a stand alone WSDL 
document could be signed.
i look forward to seeing WSDLs describing SOAP endpoints which
return the WSDL describing a SOAP service :-)

	Why?? You can sign and encrypt it when you're sending it over
	SOAP for example. Why do we need something in WSDL itself?
