Re: Proposal for new last call issue: Some unprocessed headers should stay

The direction of this is fine with me, I'd like to propose a minor 
wording tune up:

<proposed>
For any processed SOAP header block, as well as for
ignored SOAP header blocks targeted to the node
using a role other than
http://www.w3.org/2002/06/soap-envelope/role/relay:
remove the header block prior to forwarding
</proposed>

<tuneup>
Remove SOAP header blocks targeted at the node using a role other than 
http://www.w3.org/2002/06/soap-envelope/role/relay regardless of 
whether the header blocks were processed or ignored
</tuneup>

Thanks,
Marc.
