My recollection was that this was covered, at least tangentally, at  
the F2F; to stretch your metaphor, someone wearing black might not be  
a student at that institution, but if they wear something that's  
black and has the crest of the university, they probably are.  
Similarly, while the presence of the Action *property* doesn't mean  
much, the header we define has a more restricted semantic; if you  
don't want people to infer that you have addressing engaged, you can  
still populate the property with another mechanism (e.g., a header  
with a different QName).
