Rich,

You (indirectly) raised an issue ( classed number 428[1] ) against the
SOAP 1.2 Part 1 Proposed Recommendation[2] regarding whether a SOAP
intermediary can add a <soap:Header/> element to a SOAP message that
does not already have one. After some discussion the WG has decided to
amend the 3rd item in the numbered list[3] as follows:

	3. Element information items for additional header blocks MAY be
added to the [children] property of the 
         SOAP Header element information item as detailed in 2.7.2 SOAP
Forwarding Intermediaries. In this case, 
         a SOAP Header element information item MAY be added, as the
first member of the [children] property of 
         the SOAP Envelope element information item, if it is not
already present.

Prior to taking this decision we solicted input from implementers. All
responses indicated that the above change would NOT impact existing SOAP
1.2 implementations.

Regards

Martin Gudgin
For the XML Protocol Working Group
