Actually, I think this was the intent and is the way we should use it.
So if the SOAPAction URI doesn't match the URI in the SOAP Envelope
we should fault.  So, yes it's for outside of Axis but it's also for
inside (we double check it).  But that's just my opinion of the
way the chad is dimpled.  8-)
