Section 3: 2nd paragraph after property list states:

  'WS-Addressing defines the following well-known URI for use by
  endpoints that cannot have a stable, resolvable IRI:
  http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/role/anonymous.'

We are concerned that the semantics of the anonymous URI are not crisp
enough.  Specifically, it is not stated explicitly anywhere that when
HTTP is used, the anonymous URI represents the HTTP response.  We
suggest stating explicitly in the Core that its meaning is defined by
the transport in use, and adding to the SOAP Binding spec a statement
specifying the meaning when using the HTTP transport.

We propose following the above sentence with another:

  'The precise meaning of the anonymous URI is defined by the 
  transport in use.'

Add to section 3.2 of the SOAP Binding spec a statement:

  'In the case of SOAP over HTTP the URI 
  http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/role/anonymous denotes 
  the response to an HTTP request.'
