Yesterday we chose among:

   1. Default [destination] to anonymous everywhere.  Note that for SOAP
      1.1/HTTP and SOAP1.2/HTTP, anonymous [destination] may only be
      used for HTTP response messages.
   2. Default [destination] to anonymous everywhere.  Note that for SOAP
      1.1/HTTP only, anonymous [destination] may only be used for HTTP
      response messages.  /[The IRC log seems ambiguous, and I doubt
      everyone had the same understanding of what this meant for SOAP
      1.2, whether undefined for SOAP 1.2, or (analogously) only allowed
      in response messages in the context of the request-response MEP. 
      I'll assume the latter]/
   3. In the context of SOAP 1.2: Define anonymous [destination] as
      meaning .../ImmediateDestination.  State that an anonymous
      response message is the .../InboundMessage.  In the context of
      SOAP 1.1, state that anonymous [destination] may only be used for
      HTTP response messages.
   4. Make [destination] optional and remove defaulting to anonymous.

In the context of CR 18 (what does anonymous [destination] mean?), these
boil down to

   1. For an anonymous response, it means that the response message is
      the response message, and then only when the underlying protocol
      is HTTP.  It is disallowed elsewhere.
   2. For an anonymous response, it means that the response message is
      the response message.  It is disallowed elsewhere.
   3. For SOAP1.1/HTTP, it means the URL of the request for request
      messages and the same as ever for responses.  For SOAP 1.2, it
      means the .../ImmediateDestination for any message for which this
      is defined, and the same as ever for responses.
   4. Undefined.

In the context of CR 20 (when to default [destination] to anonymous),
these boil down to

   1. Status quo (default everywhere)
   2. Status quo (default everywhere)
   3. Status quo (default everywhere)
   4. Remove all defaulting by making [destination] optional (and then
      define what a missing [destination] might mean).

As far as I can tell, this was basically a choice among

   1. A Fuji apple
   2. A Granny Smith apple
   3. An orange
   4. A giraffe

It's not immediately clear to me how to infer a position on the actual
issues from one's preferences in this vote, which is why I tried to
clarify the choices on the issues themselves.
