I hereby confirm that this resolution is acceptable.  I would say that 
with respect to the sentence:

"If such Representation header blocks have the same metadata then any one 
of them may be used.""

it might be clearer to say:

"If such Representation header blocks have the same metadata then any one 
of them MAY be used when dereferencing the designated URI."

I suggest that this minor change be considered, either before or after we 
publish the WD.  Thank you.

The XMLP WG agreed to resolve issue 455 (http://www.w3.org/2000/xp/Group/xmlp-issues.html#x455), which you raised, using the 4 items below. We trust they satisfy your 
concerns, if not, please contact the WG asap.

The text describing the Representation Header will state:

1. "The type of the reinsert attribute information item is xs:boolean . 
When
this attribute is specified on the Representation header block with a
value of "true", it indicates that a SOAP forwarding intermediary node
processing the header block must reinsert the header block. This means
that when used in conjunction with the relay attribute, defined in [SOAP
Part 1] 5.2.4 SOAP Relay Attribute, with a value of "true", the
Representation header block will always be relayed by a SOAP forwarding
intermediary. When this attribute is specified on the Representation
header block with a value of "false", the behavior of the SOAP node
processing the header block is the same as that when the attribute is not
specified, and normal SOAP processing rules apply. The presence of this
attribute has no effect on the processing of a Representation header by a
SOAP endpoint."

2. The reinsert attribute is not namespace qualified.

3. "Such Representation header blocks SHOULD NOT have the same metadata 
(such as media-type). If such Representation header blocks have the same 
metadata then any one of them may be used."

4. Implementations MAY need to process Representation header blocks BEFORE 
other header blocks that might dereference URIs.
