That is no different than carrying the other addresses in Metadat,
thus carrying equivalent data in two different locations.   That
doesn't make alot of sense to me and I think it will result in
the same information being carried in different locations by
different profiles as each profile makes up their own alternative
location for the equivalent data.

I don't understand what you mean by "duping the wsa:address for
EPRs everywhere."   We aren't talking about duping anything. We
are talking about carrying multiple physical endpoints in a
single EPR describing a single logical endpoint.

I think that it is very appropriate for an addressing specification
to deal with the fact that a logical endpoint *may* have multiple
physical endpoints.
