Source Endpoint Removal Proposal

Message-ID: <57901251A4FD0B4882D999F9FA2FE5A104E4EC99@SW720EX017.visa.com>
To: <public-ws-addressing@w3.org>
The current Core Candidate Recommendation has the following language:
 
"The following feature is considered at risk: the [source endpoint]
Message Addressing property
<BLOCKED::http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-ws-addr-core-20050817#abstractmap
s>  with its counterpart
http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing/feature/SourceEndpoint SOAP 1.2
Addressing 1.0 Feature property
<BLOCKED::http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-ws-addr-soap-20050817#s12featurep
rops>  may be removed if no implementation nor external use are
demonstrated."
 
We would like you to keep the ws-a:From header (and source endpoint
property) because (among other things) it provides a place to associate
the sender of the message with the message body for the purpose of
digital signature and application-level use of the sender's identity. 
 
Additionally, as a matter of procedure, it seems odd to remove this
feature at the last minute given the fact that it has been in place for
quite a long time and seems important to the feature set of
WS-Addressing. Removing this would quite likely surprise the casual
watcher of the WS-Addressing and, IMHO, should be avoided at this point
unless something is broken with it. 
 
THANKS
