Re: [ws-rx] Anon / RM MakeConnection: [reply ep] = none

Paul,

I don't think that the behaviour I describe (where RM knowledge intrudes 
into a WS-Addressing implementation of a core WS-Addressing feature) is 
acceptable. This is a composition/layering problem.

WS-A impl must now apply special rules (as I have described) if it 
encounters a message with [reply ep] = none which happens to be a WS-RM 
message called MakeConnection. Do you agree with that statement?

If so, how would you go about creating a freestanding WS-A Core 
implementation that is RM-unaware?

WS-TX decided to make all one-ways have [reply ep] = none, to make clear 
that its notification messages are indeed "one way". I don't see any 
problem with that.

However, these MakeConnection messages are not the same. They induce, in 
the broad, the back channel behaviour created by use of anon. But they 
are subtly different, in that the response may just be an ack. There is 
no well-known URI to represent that behaviour, at present (or at least, 
the RM one is not being used).

At best, this is an RM extension to WS-Addressing, and it should layer 
cleanly on the WS-Addressing core behaviour.
