Hi Henrik,

From my point of view, this is a *much* more attractive clarification of the
use of SOAPAction, than the previous proposals (the deprecation or removal
of SOAPAction).

It addresses some of the ambiguities of the current wording, as well as
avoiding breaking existing implementations and services.

I endorse it.
