I will consider it.  The problem is that only the namespace attribute is a
URI, not other attributes.  I think I would just format the namespace to be
the URI formatted string.

Replacing whitespaces with %20 is specific to URIs and it shouldn't be
done by XmlTextWriter itself.

I don't know SOAP well, sorry if I'm missing some points. However,
You might have already considered, you can create XmlSoapWriter that
overrides XmlWriter (as a decorator). For example:

public class XmlSoapWriter : XmlWriter
  public XmlWriter writer;
  public XmlSoapWriter (XmlWriter w)
    this.writer = w;

  // It is invoked to write attribute value (and in several cases).
  public override bool WriteString (string value)
    writer.WriteString (NodeType == XmlNodeType.Attribute ?
      value.Replace (" ", "%20") : value);

... with wrapping other abstract methods 'writer.XXXmethods(XXXargs)'
