In my view, all the security information shd be collected together and
shd go in the policy sub-bucket of the metadata bucket.  But there are 
many subtleties here depending on which direction the message is flowing etc.

I suggest that the WS-Addressing WG not attempt to solve this problem. 
The existence of a metadata bucket(in place or by reference) is fine.
The details shd be left to another WG. 

All the best, Ashok
