Yes, but SOAP 1.2 doesn't say that, and I prefer it the SOAP 1.2 way.  I 
would like to be able to put a digital signature in a message, and have 
that mean something to everyone along the way who's interested in the fact 
that I signed it.  Ideally, I would address this to a role like 
"signatureReaders" or "athenticators", but "relay" is an acceptable 
compromise.  I certainly want to feel that the contract is from me to all 
of them, not from me to the next hop.  I was the one who did the signing.  
That was never a part of SOAP 1.1 that I particularly liked, and 
regardless of our decision on if and how to do relay, I would not want to 
go back to the SOAP 1.1 formulation on congracts.  Too restrictive IMO. 
Thank you!
