Re: discarding incorrect namespaces

Hi Mark.

I was rereading the spec and noticed that this had been changed.

Section 3 now reads[1]:

   A SOAP node MUST ensure that all element information items and
   attribute information items in messages that it generates are
   correctly namespace qualified.

Is that something we agreed on? I don't remember discussing this. I
like this change, but I would like to check that everybody is aware of
and happy with it. That would resolve issue 135[2].
