Jacek,

I think that the point that Stuart raises actually has merit.
There is nothing explicit in the SOAP envelope that identifies
the ultimate intended recipient of a SOAP message.

What I think Henrik would say though is that there are any number
of ways by which you can identify within the SOAP envelope 
as well as or in addition to external to the SOAP envelope 
who/what is the intended recipient.

While I would agree that there certainly are any number of ways
to achieve this, it seems to me that it is not unreasonable
that the SOAP envelope carry this information in a standard
manner so that we don't end up with a gazillion different
and more than likely non-interoperable ways of achieving
this.

The same applies to SOAPAction IMO. 

Cheers,

Chris
