I understand the scenario you have described.  The question I have,
is the digital signature on the output chain marked "mustUnderstand"?

What are the semantics of this?  Is the requestor obliged to throw a
mustUnderstand fault upon receipt of the response? (section 2 of SOAP
spec indicates this is what requestor must do).  How does the
provider get notified that the requestor threw the fault?  What should
the provider do, attempt to undo the original service invocation?

I didn't think this is quite true.  The SOAP objects (much like
you modeled in TRL SOAP) are responsible for converting
to and from string representation.  The transport layer is
built to manipulate strings on the transport protocol, not
be "intelligent" about soap concepts.
