+1. This fits nicely with BPEL for example .. the presence of ReplyTo
can be used to update the EPR for a partner (or is it partnerLink
now; I've lost track). A message sent to that partner later can use
this updated address even though it has nothing to do with the WSDL 
MEP that was caused the original message (exchange).
