What does this interesting new, ad hoc work have to do with this interesting , new standards work and this interesting, new-ish effort by GK?

Not that this has to do with the differences, or not, but

I notice the “XML coding of RFC822 messages” includes a generic “mustUnderstand” feature (sec. 3.10.1), as compared to SOAP’s support of mustUnderstand only in the header, which prompted Sam Ruby to suggest using a SOAP wrapper http://www.intertwingly.net/blog/1303.html for the CommentAPI http://wellformedweb.org/story/9 .

I would love to see a “generic mustUnderstand” spec be adopted.
