/ "Jean-Jacques Moreau" <jean-jacques.moreau@crf.canon.fr> was heard to say:
| SOAP's processing model is order agnostic,

But if that's true, then the arguments against PIs that talk about
what happens if a header is removed by an intermediary are totally
bogus. If the headers are unordered, then the PIs are unordered as
well. That means I'd either have to put them inside a header or they'd
have to apply to the whole header. So now I don't see the problem with
PIs at all.

| so you would have to write
| your example this way.

No, I don't have to. I can write it just the way I wrote it. :-)
But you've demonstrated that order isn't an issue with the PIs.

| Notice the use of the mustUnderstand attribute
| to make sure your "processing instructions" are not silently ignored.
|   <s:Envelope>
|     <s:Header>
|       <myns:ignoreHeader
|           role="intermed1"
|           myns:QName="n1:yourHeader1"

myns:QName? Ugh. Why not just have an attribute for the URI and
another attribute for the local-name. (I fear I'm getting deeper into
SOAP than I really want to.)

                                        Be seeing you,
