I agree, which is why I was being careful formulating the proposal :)
Thank you for the clarification, though. I take it that your intent is
to call out the separation of concerns, not to propose a change to the

The intent is to indicate that a SOAP node must assume that the II
children of the Body are semantically significant in order to properly
understand the contents of the Body EII.

FWIW, we have a similar statement for whitespace IIs in section 5.3 [1]
which says:

"The Body element information item MAY have any number of character
information item children whose character code is amongst the whitespace
characters as defined by [XML 1.0]. These are considered significant."

I think this was based on last call comment 208 [2].
