Even if the tk automatically puts them at the top, the server MUST have
had them in the record to start with for recordPacking=string.
For them to not be there when recordPacking=string is simply _wrong_.
Secondly, SOAP tks for the client side can afford to be worse than the tks
used for the servers, as per much prior discussion.
