The TAG discussed the issue that you proposed at its distributed meeting 
on 24th Jan [1] and decided to add a new issue to our issues list [2].

I would like it to be clear that this decision should not be seen as 
implicity supporting for your position or rejecting the WS-Addressing 
WGs position.  <>It is an indication that the TAG would like to spend 
more time discussing the issue and understanding its architectural 
signifiance (if any) more fully.

Best regards
