New LC Issue: Clarify section 4.1

Jonathan Marsh

Section 4.1 Destination

 

This section says “In the absence of additional runtime information, the value of the [destination] message addressing property for a message sent to an endpoint MUST match the value of the {address} property ...”

 

The use of MUST in conjunction with “additional runtime information” makes this phrase a bit confusing.  The MUST implies that this condition is testable, but the rest of the text shatters that implication.  Perhaps this could be reworded to remove the MUST, for example “the value of [destination] … typically matches the value of the {address} property.”

I would also like to see this MUST removed as I agree it is confusing and untestable.
I have a recollection that when discussing i70 [1] we couldn't see where the MUST had come from (it wasn't in the resolution to i56 [2]) and that it shouldn't be there but that recollection isn't in the minutes for the resolution of i70 :-(

Cheers,
David

Section 4.1 Destination



This section says "In the absence of additional runtime information, the
value of the [destination] message addressing property for a message
sent to an endpoint MUST match the value of the {address} property ..."



The use of MUST in conjunction with "additional runtime information"
makes this phrase a bit confusing.  The MUST implies that this condition
is testable, but the rest of the text shatters that implication.
Perhaps this could be reworded to remove the MUST, for example "the
value of [destination] ... typically matches the value of the {address}
property."
