Re: Proposal for resolution of issue 176

I'd be concerned if we completely disallowed intermediairies to
change the lexical representation of a message. First, we would
not be able to use off-the-shelf DOM parsers, since (I believe)
most of them throw away the original XML. This restriction may go
away in the future as parser's adapt to SOAP's special needs.
Second, a resource constraint device acting as an intermediary
may simply not be able to store the entire message and reproduce
a byte-for-byte identical copy.
