Mark, it may be the morning for me, but I just don't get it. I'd like to
keep MTOM simple and I don't see the variety of qualities you mention. I
don't think the text below sounds like an actual issue.

Granted, the optimization preservation across intermediaries is just an
'e.g.' in issue 431, but I like concrete issues, therefore I proposed we
close issue 431 by saying what seems to be the consent of the group,
i.e. that intermediaries can indeed change what is optimized.

Are you (and maybe others) saying that you disagree with the line above
tentatively and wish to wait until we have the requirements?

Or are you saying that there may be a bigger issue we will see after we
have the requirements? If this is the case, let's close 431, wait for
the requirements and open issues stemming from them.

Best regards,
