SOAP header mapping is completely standard, and perhaps equally important,
it can be different on the client and the server without impact to
interoperability.  This means you might get a WSDL that doesn't define any
headers, or defines headers but doesn't map them into message parts, and you
can add/change the mappings without changing the transport-level messages.
I don't know if it's supported by other engines but I've seen a good number
of WSDLs in the wild that use this approach.
