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
s>  with its counterpart
http://www.w3.org/2005/08/addressing/feature/SourceEndpoint SOAP 1.2
Addressing 1.0 Feature property
rops>  may be removed if no implementation nor external use are
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. 
P.S. I'm not subscribed to this email list, so please reply directly to
me if you want to discuss further.
