Has the WG decided what the identifier is yet?  Because if it has, I
maintain that it's maximally self-descriptive for the identifier to be
able to be located within the message which provides increased
visibility for (generally) very little cost.  Some might recall the
issue with HTTP 1.0 allowing partial URIs in the request line, and the
ensuing problems for supporting virtual hosting.  This necessitated the
introduction of the Host header in HTTP 1.1 which restored the lost
identifying information.

If the URI + RefProps is the identifier, then the RefProps need to be
declared as such.  If it's just the URI, then all is good; wsa:To
suffices.  If it's the whole EPR, then you need a way to distinguish
RefProps & RefParams from each other, as well as other SOAP headers.

Self-description means never having to say you're sorry.

Mark.
