Hello Hugo,

I have a question regarding the abstraction.

Is it fair to say that that there are certain SOAP message supports for the
use cases that you would want to document even in an abstracted form?

For instance, to implement request-acknowledge in an asynchronous stateless
protocol, you need some kind of message ID to refer to?

Even if you don't implement in stateless asynchronous and even if it's not a
SOAP protocol requirement it seems intuitive that it is still a requirement to
be able to identify the original message in some way.

Regards,

Rich Katz
