Clarify distinction between XML Infoset representation and SOAP headers (SOAP, clarification)

Section 3.2 states: 
  'The SOAP 1.2 Addressing 1.0 Module uses the XML Infoset 
  representation of the abstract message addressing properties 
  defined in Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Core.'

The terminology between the abstract properties and the XML
representation of those properties, reused as SOAP headers, is
confusing.  Defining the XML representations and their use as SOAP
headers in a single spec helps (see comment
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ws-addressing-comments/2005Ap
r/0024.html). But we also suggest being more precise in distinguishing
these two notions.

Change the above sentence to:

  'The SOAP 1.2 Addressing 1.0 Module defines SOAP headers corresponding
  to the XML Infoset representation of the abstract message addressing
  properties defined in Web Services Addressing 1.0 - Core.'

Change the sentence in Section 3.3 which states:

  'When a message is be addressed to an endpoint, the values of the SOAP

  1.2 WS-Addressing 1.0 Feature properties are mapped to the message as
  SOAP header blocks with the following additional modifications:'

to read:

  'When a message is to be addressed to an endpoint, the XML
  representation of each SOAP 1.2 WS-Addressing 1.0 Feature property is
  inserted into the message as a SOAP header block subject to the
  following additional constraints:'

Change the third bullet in Section 3.3, which states:

  'Each property that is of type IRI MUST be serialized as an absolute
  IRI in the SOAP message.'

to read:

  'Each property that is of type IRI MUST be serialized as an absolute
  IRI in the corresponding XML Infoset representation of that Message
  Addressing Property.'
