If a header block does not have an actor and the must understand attribute is not set, is it assumed that the receiver must handle the header block? Does this assume that a web service must know that it is the ultimate receiver (not intermediary) in a message path?
Thanks in advance.

If the mustUnderstand attribute is not set, it is defaulted to '0' which indicates to the receiver not to handle the header block.
According to BP 1.0 "Mandatory header blocks are those children of the soap:Header element bearing a soap:mustUnderstand attribute with a value of "1".
