 I'm afraid the text you quote does not address the issue. I 
think the proposal should rather be to say: 
 "While the target URI is not normatively in the envelope, if an 
application uses intermediaries, it must configure somehow 
(either statically or using dynamic routing protocol) the message 
path. Part of this configuration is the successive target URIs. 
Therefore it is the responsibility of the application designer to 
provide the appropriate target URIs at the appropriate points of 
the message path, or of a routing extension, not of the SOAP 
 What'dya think? 8-)
