Action item for [i061]

My action item, quoting from the minutes (9/12):

"1) in case 2, if wsa headers are sent, they must be responded to by the

2) in case 2, client either chooses to honor Addressing, or not to include
any wsa headers (whole enchilada)

3) in case 3, wsaw:Action is informational.

Clarify these three items.

<mnot> [numbered bullets are additions to 3' proposal in Jonathan's

The two paragraphs below address this AI.

After first paragraph of Section 4.1, insert the following.

The inclusion of wsaw:Action without inclusion of wsaw:UsingAddressing has
no normative intent and is only informational. In other words, the
inclusion of wsaw:Action attributes alone does not imply a requirement on
clients to use wsa header blocks in messages it sends to the service. A
client, however, MAY include wsa header blocks in the messages it sends,
either on the client's own initiative or as described by other elements of
the service contract.  It MAY use the values of wsaw:Action in these
headers.  Additional mechanisms defining the value of [action] are under no
constraint from this spec to be consistent with wsaw:Action.

Modify second paragraph in section 3.1 as follows:

A wsaw:UsingAddressing element with a wsdl:required attribute whose value
is "true" indicates that messages exchanged with the endpoint MUST contain
WS-Addressing Message Addressing Properties. A wsaw:UsingAddressing element
with a wsdl:required attribute whose value is "false" indicates that the
endpoint will accept input messages with or without WS-Addressing header
blocks. <add>In this case, if WS-Addressing header blocks are included in a
message sent to the endpoint, their use MUST be fully compliant with this
specification; in particular, senders MUST use all header blocks mandated
by the WS-Addressing specification and MUST follow all applicable
WS-Addressing normative requirements.</add> An endpoint MAY generate output
messages containing WS-Addressing headers, <add>however, if a message
including WS-Addressing header blocks is sent to the endpoint, any related
messages sent by the endpoint MUST also contain WS-Addressing headers in
accordance to WS-Addressing</add>. If a SOAP binding is used and
WS-Addressing header blocks are not present in an input message then
WS-Addressing header blocks encoded in the corresponding output message
MUST NOT be required to be understood using the SOAP mustUnderstand
