 I don't think your second statement is just an other way of 
saying the first.

 The attributes id and ref are only meaningful the known way when 
used on elements using the SOAP Encoding encodingStyle.

 Or at least I always thought so.

 Maybe this is the right time to 1) make the attributes namespace
qualified and say that SOAP Encoding references may only go to
SOAP Encoding IDs. Or to 2) say that the encodingStyle is applied
also on the targets of references. Or to 3) explain what happens
when a node in SOAP Encoding data has a different encodingStyle.

 In fact, I believe we have two slightly different issues here:

 A) can SOAP Encoding reference point to non-SOAP-Encoding ID?
 B) what's it mean if a node in SOAP Encoding data has a 
different encodingStyle?

 My positions are No on A (making the attributes ns-qualified 
would probably help us achieve this) and on B it's either 
forbidden or a terminal node.
