OK, here is version 3 which actually names those two types of
intermediaries (as in SOAP 1.2[1]):

   There are two types of intermediaries:
   - Forwarding intermediaries: the processing done by these agents
     was explicitely requested in the message by the message sender.
   - Active intermediaries: they are agents that undertake additional
     processing of the message in ways not described or requested by
     the message sender. This additional processing may be done
     without the message sender or receiver's knowledge, intent or
     consent; examples of such intermediaries include transparent
     proxies or firewalls.

Hopefully, I won't have lost any of the clarity.
