	[Nilo Mitra (EMX)]  Perhaps you are reading an old version of the Primer. Since 2/13/02, the Primer
	has been updated to use the term "ultimateReceiver" instead of "anonymous", and no further mention
	is made of the anonymous actor.

	[Nilo Mitra (EMX)]  In view of the above cahnes, does your concern go away? Please confirm.

	[Nilo Mitra (EMX)]  I am afraid I cannot find these sentences in the current draft. Please could you let me know which version of
	the primer you have been commenting on. You will find the time stamp right after the title.
	In fact, please could I persuade you to re-read the sections in the latest draft that concern you - this would be section 2..3 in the latest version - to see if what
	bothered you has gone away. I add a reference to the latest draft at the end of this email.

> 3- Section 2.4, very last paragraph:

> The text "If there were several mandatory headers that were not

> headers elements that were not understood..."
	[Nilo Mitra (EMX)]  I have changed it to say "If there....mandatory header **blocks**...." I think that is the correct term. Immediate children
	of env:Header are called header blocks.

> I hope it could help,
	[Nilo Mitra (EMX)]  It does. Thank you. May I persuade you to read a considerably revised version at:
