RE: Intermediaries - various cases

It's also interesting to read Jacek Kopecky's comment in issue#2:

"In some cases putting the target URI in the envelope may be undesirable

does not know/care  where exactly the message goes after reaching some

It sounds like the second case that Jacek mentions is the pub/sub one. If
that is true, then he is thinking of the pub/sub node as an intermediary.

But issue #2 is exactly about the fact that SOAP 1.2 does not provide any
explicit mechanism for specifying the ultimate recipient. (Of course I can
always define a SOAP extension that provides that, but it does not seem to
be part of the basic spec).
