In the current Working Draft of SOAP 1.2, Section 3, "Relation to XML" it is

"A SOAP message SHOULD NOT contain processing instruction information items.
A SOAP receiver MUST ignore processing instruction information items in SOAP
messages it receives."

However, in the SOAP 1.2 Primer many of the examples start with:
<?xml version='1.0' ?>

The above is by definition a processing instruction per XML 1.0, "2.6
Processing Instructions",

Granted, the Primer is not normative, but why was this added to examples in
the first place?  Is it in anticipation of allowing XML Declarations of the
  XMLDecl ::= '<?xml' VersionInfo EncodingDecl? SDDecl? S? '?>' 

in the Recommended draft of SOAP 1.2?
