Right - same with SOAPAction-based dispatch, or anything else outside 
the SOAP envelope (i.e. transport-specific).

Hm - isn't a "dispatcher" just any old Handler that happens to know how 
to set the service/operation/messageReference?  It's not (and shouldn't 
be) anything different or special....  If you make a special class of 
"dispatchers" you then need to define the meaning of that, extra 
semantics, etc., none of which I believe is necessary.

I think the only thing that matters is that at the end of the Dispatch 
phase, the post-condition must be met.  The whole point is to allow 
maximal flexibility in terms of how and when that might occur.
