Per my AI, Paco and I discussed subissue 3 of issue i020 last night and 
a proposed resolution for it. Here is what we would like to propose to 
resolve subissue 3.

[[ Please note that Paco and I have only generally agreed on what the 
resolution should be; he has not seen the wordings in this email and 
therefore it should not be assumed that he has agreed to the wordings ]]


Subissue iii [1] is:

-----
An EPR allows one to include (optionally) a service endpoint/port.
If such an endpoint/port is included in an EPR, what is the relationship
between the value of the [address] property and the URI value in the
[service-port] property? We have said that the [address] property is a
logical address and not necessarily the physical endpoint where messages
can be sent and how the mapping between logical to physical takes place
is an extensibility point. Is that true if a service QName is present in
the EPR. I.e., should our spec say that if the service QName is present
then the physical address is what is specified by the wsdl port.
-----

Proposed resolution:

1) When the EPR minter includes a [selected interface], and/or [service 
endpoint] then the EPR is considered to be specific to the [selected 
interface] and/or [service endpoint]

2) When an EPR contains [service endpoint] with a QName identifying the 
service element and an NCName identifying port/endpoint, then the 
information specified in the port/endpoint (including the network 
endpoint address) is used to send messages to the endpoint 
identified^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h specified by the EPR. I.e., the physical 
address/binding used to contact the endpoint is the one specified in the 
port/endpoint. This physical address may be the same as the one in the 
[address] property. If it is different from the value in the [address] 
property then the [address] property is considered to be a logical address.

3) When an EPR contains [service interface] property with a QName 
identifying the service element but an NCName identifying port/endpoint 
is *not* specified, then the information specified in any of the 
port/endpoint (including the network endpoint address) that implements 
the [selected interface], if present, is used to send messages to the 
endpoint specified by the EPR. I.e., the physical address/binding used 
to contact the endpoint is the one specified in any of the 
port/endpoint. The [address] property is considered to be a logical 
address if there are more than one ports/endpoints defined in the 
service element.
