This section contains common definitions used by this protocol. The syntax of the definitions uses the XML schema as defined in [XMLSCHEMA1] and [XMLSCHEMA2], and Web Services Description Language (WSDL) as defined in [WSDL].

This protocol follows the standard XML data usage as specified by [SOAP1.1], [SOAP1.2-1/2003], [SOAP1.2-2/2003], and [XML10/5]. Following the rules specified by these standards, certain elements allow for the existence of unknown attributes. These unknown attributes are ignored unless otherwise explicitly specified within this document.
