RE: Thoughts on TAG issue EndpointsRef47

i'm not Savas, but a sender can send the reponse wherever it
likes! Though typically it will verify the address against a whitelist,
then a blacklist and send it /wherever/..

 I have a question:
 Given an epr, how does the sending system determine the http address to
 use to
 send the http post request, if all it has is a logical urn for the
 epr:address element?
 this is not discussed in the spec.

 How do you get interoperability unless this "registry" mechanism is
 defined in the spec?
 How does the client determine the http addres (in the soap http post
 binding case) to
 send the request to for that epr?
