Section 3.1 UsingAddressing Extension Element


Table 3-1 purports to constrain the behavior of an endpoint based on
soap:mustUnderstand in the input message, when wsaw:UsingAddressing is
not present.  If we had a conformance clause defining conformance to
wsaw:UsingAddressing, it would be more apparent that the definition of
wsaw:UsingAddressing cannot reasonably constrain the behavior when
wsaw:UsingAddressing is not used.  There are two ways to address this


First, one could remove the column "UsingAddressing Not Present" from
the table, and therefore collapse the first two rows, removing mention
of soap:mustUnderstand on input messages.  This is preferable because
this spec can't and shouldn't attempt to constrain the behavior of
soap:mustUnderstand, especially in the case where this spec isn't even
engaged by the presence of wsaw:UsingAddressing!


An alternative is to clarify which parts of the table are normative or
not, by adding "(non-normative)" to the title of the last column to make
it clear that we're restating for the reader's convenience behavior
defined outside this specification.
