How about the following (with additions in CAPITALS) to take care of the concern from a receiver's point of view:

"The special URI "http://www.w3.org/2001/06/soap-envelope/actor/next" 
indicates that the SOAP header block is intended for the next SOAP node in the SOAP message path OR THE CURRENT SOAP RECEIVER, IN THE CASE WHEN SUCH A HEADER BLOCK IS RECEIVED AT A SOAP NODE."
