Draft insertion as part of the errata process:

When presented with conflicting policies, endpoints or services are  
expected to make do with what they have, since these assertions do not  
present demands but describe some acceptable forms of addresses,  
potentially amongst others, that might be accepted.  By making do with  
what it has, the service or end point is to collect all the various  
bits of policy assertions it has at its disposal and may consider them  
all to be potentially usable policy alternatives.  Implementations are  
encouraged to respond with a non-anonymous form if presented or an  
anonymous form if not.

Irrational behavior such as locking up completely, or electronically  
spitting the dummy by throwing faults that nobody is listening for and  
might not be received anyway especially since you can't determine what  
address form is acceptable, is not to be tolerated and will result in  
a free membership to the WS-Policy Working Group with the Complements  
of WS-Addressing.
