My only concern is EPR is used everywhere and it doesn't need to contain
WS-Addressing namespace in it. Its required only when you
serialize/de-serialize it.

For example, when you formulate a request to be sent and when you are
doing request-response invocation over the same HTTP channle, you don't
need to know anything about WS-Addressing. And no WS-Addressing modules
are required.

Thats why I like to keep EPR class independent from any namespace. For
me its just a bean which encapsulates information about an endpoint.
Serializing it using WS-A rules or any other rules is not its problem.

Yes, I agree its a problem if where to keep the code, both of us agree
on other stuff :)
