This would mean that every WSDL with this tag cannot be validated
against the schemas. I stumbled across this because I used standard XML
tooling for generating WSDLs and I couldn't insert this tag. To me
having invalid XML files in this regard is... well... astohnishing.
Especially, because the WSDL and XSD standards are using all features of
XSD that you can imagine.
