Agreed - which is why I do think we should we say something
along the lines of what's I've proposed [1] - which is just
to say that it's optional (noting the change from soap 1.1)

Well, I have no strong feeling as to the right solution for SOAPAction,
but I do think it's presence in the SOAP v1.1 spec gives it special status
in our work.  I think users will expect us to give some guidance regarding
its use, even if we do so only in a note.
