Hello Noah:
I have two comments on your joint reformulation for mU:

1) Suggest replacing "endpoint" with "ultimate SOAP receiver"

2) First part of first sentence of  proposed new second paragraph:

> The SOAP mustUnderstand attribute is useful for detecting 
> situations in which required software is not available at a 
> node which has been correctly targeted; 

I think this sentence is a bit confusing, and seems to not quite fit with the
rest of the para which discusses what to do when the targeted node was never reached.
If the node has been "correctly targeted" and "the required software is not available", 
then  section 4.2, second para seems quite clear that the node should not "process the SOAP
message at all, and fail."

I'm also a little concerned that the proposed *specification* text is straying
from what must be done, or what must happen to guidelines/suggestions for how to deal 
(albeit interesting) situations.

If this *part* of the first sentence were removed, and it started "It is not intended..",
I don't think your points would be lost.
