Re: using xsi:type with the SOAP encoding rules

Stay tuned.  Gudge and I have an action item to write this up.  Short 
answer:  validation is not requried.  When you're not validating, you'll 
know the name of the type, but not even whether it is simple or complex. 
If you choose to validate, then the type must match the element.   So, if 
your element is a struct, it should be complex.

        Subject:        using xsi:type with the SOAP encoding rules

What happens if a SOAP encoded message uses xsi:type to describe an
element's content in terms of a XSD complexType? Is this explicilty
allowed or disallowed under the SOAP encoding rules, or is it simply not
