It's certainly good to see everybody working together, but it's
unfortunate that it's on yet another WS-* spec with very few redeeming
qualities.  Ok, maybe parts of sections 3 and 4 have some value, but its
raison d'etre, section 2, is IMO entirely unnecessary (and worse,
actively harmful).  URIs are perfectly adequate as message endpoint
references; nothing more is needed.
