I'll just quickly second Doug's analysis.  I think your conclusion #5 is 
not supported by the specification, and was not intended by my summary. I 
had written:

>> Tagging elements in this manner 
>> assures that this change in 
>> semantics will not be silently 
>> (and, presumably, erroneously) 
>> ignored by those who may not
>> fully understand it.

I suppose it could be worded yet a bit more legalistically, but I referred 
to not silently ignoring "by those who my not fully understand it."  I did 
not say "fail to be processed due to misrouting".  Doug's summary is 
correct in my opinion, and SOAP only applies mustUnderstand rules at the 
point where an actor (explicit or anonymous) has been matched.  In other 
words, MU is checked only at the points where software has reason to 
believe it should be responsible for handling a particular header block.
