We define the InvalidAddress fault that is available to receivers  
should they receive a message containing an address they are not  
happy with. I don't think we require an endpoint to advertise all its  
capabilities, we just provide the mechanism to do so if they wish so  
I don't think we'd require and endpoint to send a fault if it  
receives an EPR with an address that doesn't match the ones that its  
policy advertises support for.

Right.

Right.
