How about using the term "qualify" rather than include.  That makes clear 
(to those few who read the namespaces rec carefully) that the usual 
mechanisms of default namespaces, etc. can be used to achieve the 
qualification.  I don't thing that "including" a namespace has any formal 

"A XMLP/SOAP processor SHOULD >>qualify with the 
proper XMLP/SOAP namespace all
all elements and attributes defined by XMLP/SOAP<< in messages that it
generates. A XMLP/SOAP processor MUST be able to process >>properaly
namespace qualified XMLP/SOAP elements and attributes<< in messages that 
it receives 
and it MAY process XMLP/SOAP >>elements and attributes<< 
without XMLP/SOAP namespaces as though they had the correct
XMLP/SOAP namespaces. It MUST generate a fault (see section 4.4) on
receipt of messages using >>SOAP/XMLP-defined elements and attributes<<
that have incorrect namespaces."

What do you think?
