Even if it were to be true, I don't see why this is relevant to the work of 
the WSDL 2.0 WG. At some time in the future, some derivative of one of the 
current or future versions of WS-Addressing may become a W3C REC or adopted 
standard by some recognized standards body. In the meantime could someone 
point me to a WSD WG requirement that would justify why it is in scope of 
this WG?
