endPointRefs-47; still an issue in WS-Addressing CR

Greetings,

I just wanted to point out that the just announced WS-Addressing SOAP
Binding CR[1] still has the problem described in the endPointsRefs-47[2]
issue.

FWIW, in case it helps, another way to look at this issue is to observe
that there is functional overlap between the WS-Addressing SOAP binding
and the SOAP 1.2 HTTP binding, and the meaning of that overlap is
undefined.  Specifically, each has its own definition for the concepts
of "operation" and "destination address"; the former defines the wsa:To
and wsa:Action headers, while the latter defines the
"ImmediateDestination"[3] and "Method"[4] (and "Action"[5], to confuse
things even more) properties.

Cheers,
