I think the complexity of WS-Addressing is faux complexity, because it
standardizes something that doesn't need standardizing. A service
provider could encapsulate all that state referencing information into
an http URI in whatever proprietary encoding they saw fit to use, and
any posessor of that URI on planet earth could use it to late-bind to a
representation of that state, without knowledge of that encoding.
