+1, seems likely i might want my 'address' to point to a distribution list,
or a pointer redirected via configuration in my server.

	There may not be a need to map the "logical" URI to a specific transport
	address. Imagine a service with a logical address
	'urn:chocolates:service' which sells chocolates. You want to buy a
	chocolate from a peer-to-peer network of services without caring about
	the actual endpoint of the service that will serve you.
	
	<soap:Envelope>
	  <soap:Header>
	    <wsa:To>urn:chocolates:service</wsa:To>
	  </soap:Header>
	  <soap:Body>
	    <m:OrderForm>
	      <m:noChocolateBars>10</m:noChocolateBars>
	      <m:maxAmmountPerChocolateBar>1000</m:maxAmmountPerChocolateBar>
	    </m:OrderForm>
	  </soap:Body>
	</soap:Envelope>
	
	All you have to do is just give this message to the P2P network which
	will know how to do deal with it. No need to go from a logical to a
	transport-specific address for this service. But even if you had to,
	there is a use case for using logical addresses as indexes in registries
	where transport-specific endpoints can be found at runtime ("give me all
	the transport endpoints of the urn:chocolates:service service").
	
	Regards,
	.savas.
