WS-Addressing SOAP binding specification has the following statements:

"To ensure interoperability with a broad range of devices, all
conformant implementations that include support for SOAP 1.2 MUST
support the SOAP 1.2 Addressing 1.0 Module."

"To ensure interoperability with a broad range of devices, all
conformant implementations that include support for SOAP 1.1 MUST
support the SOAP 1.1 Addressing 1.0 Extension."

The above could be interpreted to mean, all conformant implementations 
of SOAP 1.2 MUST support SOAP 1.2 Addressing 1.0 Module and all 
conformant implementations of SOAP 1.1 MUST support SOAP 1.1 Addressing 
1.0 Extension. I believe that is not the intent.

I would ask that these statements be rephrased as follows to eliminate 
any ambiguity:

"To ensure interoperability with a broad range of devices, all 
comformant implementations of WS-Addressing 1.0 that include support for 
SOAP 1.2 MUST support the SOAP 1.2 Addressing 1.0 Module"

and

"To ensure interoperability with a broad range of devices, all 
comformant implementations of WS-Addressing 1.0 that include support for 
SOAP 1.1 MUST support the  SOAP 1.1 Addressing 1.0 Extension"
