Hugo noticed that we have a requirement regarding intermediaries, but we 
don't say anything about them in our draft:

>| R031

We discussed them at our 19 May 2004 F2F in NYC[1] where we decided to 
remove soap:header.  From the minutes, it looks like we were thinking that 
the AD feature would meet this need (to enable an appropriate role header 
to be set), and we later adopted[2] the AD feature.

Is there anything else that we need to do to meet R031, or are we all set 
on this?   And if we do need something additional in the spec, can we add 
this to tomorrow's agenda?
