It's WS-I Basic Profile..   It's not all the rules though.   I think WSI-BP 
defines hundreds, if not thousands, of checks.   We're pretty much checking 
for the common issues.   If someone wants to go through the BP spec and write 
additional checks, that would be great.   It's not a priority for *ME* as the 
existing checks have been fairly adequate.

Well, the WSI-security profile defines on-the-wire rules and such.   It really 
doesn't  define any rules for anything in the WSDL.   What would a *WSDL* 
validator validate with this?
