Oh, I think your closing email [1] is a bit wrong and a bit confusing:

it says the five numbered points are characteristics of the new role,
where only the second is, in fact. The first point isn't true (IIRC),
the use of the new role is totally up to the application; a
Representation header can be targeted at any other role and the usual
rules apply, including the points 3a, 3b and 4 in the closing email.

I think the closing email should be rephrased to something like:

        At its recent f2f, the XMLP WG decided to close this issue with
        the following actions:
        1. define a new role (name to be decided) that causes all
        Representation header blocks targeted to it always to be
        reinserted, even if processed.
        2. Note that it's OK for multiple Representation header blocks
        in the same message to have the same URI and role. Such
        Representation header blocks would typically have different
        3. Note that implementations MAY need to process Representation
        header blocks BEFORE other header blocks that might dereference
