With some reluctance, I agree with Gudge.  My guess is that the way to use 
schemas will not be to do the encoding with schemas (because encoding is 
for graphs and schemas aren't), but someday to define a restricted "tree 
only" RPC that uses schema directly.  Very useful, the right thing to do, 
but too late for SOAP 1.2.  Also, since all this is in Adjuncts, we don't 
have to rev. SOAP 1.2 to get there, just publish the additional spec at 
the right time, I think, and then do the WSDL (which gets infinitely 
easier, I think.) 

So, given that we want graphs, I'd vote +1 and stick with what we have.

I propose we close Issue 325[1] with no action. We've been over this
ground before, Noah and I spent considerable time in Cannes trying to
come up with an integrated approach which was consistent and were
unsuccessful. Moreover, the layered approah we have in the spec now is
sufficient for people to perform schema processing in order to get type
information if they want it.
