Subject: Issue 183 - Proposal For Vote
183 - Ambiguity in Rethrow Semantics Proposal: Make it clear that rethrow always rethrows the original fault, not a possibly modified version. Also explain how we deal with issue 12 catches of message variables using element variables. Section 13.4 From: In essence <rethrow> can be considered a macro for a <throw> that throws the fault caught by the corresponding fault handler. To: Rethrow is used to rethrow the fault that was originally caught by the immediately enclosing fault handler. For example if a fault handler should modify the fault data and then call rethrow what would be rethrown would be the original fault data, not the modified version. Similarly if a fault handler uses the shortcut that allows message type faults with one part defined using an element to be caught by fault handlers looking for the same element type, then a rethrow would rethrow the original message type data.
