Dave,

SOAP1.2's @role does not specify an endpoint, it specifies a role. An 
endpoint can
assume a role, but that is no different than an actor assuming a character 
role
in a play. There can be many actors who play the role and an actor can 
take on multiple roles (even in the same play!)

http://w3.org/2003/05/ultimateReceiver is not an endpoint URI, it is a URI 
that identifies
a role, nothing more, nothing less.

There is no spoon,
