Well, that means that an application might be able to tell when it's trying
to generate a message for a new or different version of the protocol, but
how would the receiver of a message (the SOAP processor) be able to tell
that the message it's receiving is compatible with the version (or versions)
of the protocol that it implements?

I would prefer to see this phrased in terms of the XP application
determining whether a given message conforms to a version of XP that the
application recognises rather than in terms of comparison of twos messages.
I don't think evolution is defined in terms of messages being compatible
with each other but in terms of messages conforming to a given version of

I'm also having some difficulty understanding what the last sentence means.
How can an XP envelope *mandate* that an application be extended?
