Replace the paragraph reading

    Due to the range of network technologies currently in wide-spread
    use (e.g., NAT, DHCP, firewalls), many deployments cannot assign a
    meaningful global IRI to a given endpoint. To allow these
    "anonymous" endpoints to send and receive messages, WS-Addressing
    defines the following pre-defined URI for use by endpoints that
    cannot have a stable, resolvable IRI:
    "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/anonymous". Messages whose
    [reply endpoint], [source endpoint] and/or [fault endpoint] use this
    address MUST rely on some out-of-band mechanism for delivering
    replies or faults (e.g. returning the reply on the same transport
    connection).

With this text:

    Some transport bindings, notably SOAP/HTTP, provide a means of
    returning a message directly to the sender of that message,
    regardless of its contents.  To allow for direct use of such a
    facility, WS-Addressing defines the URI
    "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/sender" to indicate that the
    destination is the sender: This URI MAY be used as the [address] of
    the [reply endpoint] and/or [fault endpoint] addressing property,
    but SHOULD NOT be so used if the transport binding is known not to
    provide a return facility.
