Hi Jean-Jacques.

Hmmm... so you are saying that a SOAP message should be able to have
more than one ultimate receiver.

My view is that conceptually, there is only one ultimate receiver role
but several SOAP nodes may end up with the message in their hands and
act in this abstract role.

Basically, I don't see any problem with what the spec says as long as
this abstract/role vs. concrete/node separation is clearly made.

Or maybe I didn't get your point.
