Then the same logic should be applied to "martin" the instance and it should
be serialized to
<lastName> Gudgin </lastName>
<firstName> Martin </firstName>
... because nobody would claim that "martin" the instance is in the
best.practice.com package. It is local to that method.

Hmm. OK. Actually this is my first time to read the spec of SOAP, but I
found plenty of examples in the spec.
I'd appreciate if you would show me one or two more examples.

Because unqualified attributes reside in the small namespace that its
owner element creates. It's called "the per-element-type partitions."
Any unqualified element, on the other hand, resides in the no-namespace.
(I don't know the correct terminology.)
I think this is a significant difference.
