This would be counter to the spec. Just because the Apache SOAP2.1 processor
doesn't handle Header entries correctly seems a poor excuse to
violate the spec. There are few cases I can think of when there
isn't something from the TR&P namespace in the Body element.

This should make no difference what-so-ever unless there are
some using non-namespace aware XML parsers.

Seems reasonable. I would suggest a consistent mime type for the
null payload.

There is no formal URN scheme for DUNS numbers (as has been hashed
to death on the TR&P list). I would recommend that you just pick
something and go with it for purposes of the POC.

You could make them up, or each vendor could use their
own (assuming they all have one). You can look it up if you
don't know it off hand.

Agreed, we need to get this resolved.

Agreed, and the sooner the better;-)
