All the web servers I've used (IIS, Apache, Netscape) provide access to the
HTTP headers and the SOAPAction contents are easily accessible to a CGI,
ISAPI, NSAPI or servlet program. Once a message broker has the SOAPAction
data it can use the information without any further expansion (it's relative
to the Host/HTTP POST URI of the message broker).
