On the contrary it makes good sense to have addressing information like
"to" in an addressing spec. It makes less sense to have "intent" or
"dispatch" information in an addressing spec, and (controversy ahead)
very little sense whatsoever to have "context" information in an
addressing spec.

So - in addition to seeing off wsa:action I would also like to see
refprops/refparams removed. Certainly people will want to populate the
header space with particular header blocks, but bodging this through an
addressing mechanism seems a poor factoring.
