my preference is to make a missing FaultTo value mean the same as the
ReplyTo value, and have an explicit URI to indicate /dev/null.
i'm of the same opinion for i0028 *if* we allow ReplyTo to be missing,
then an exlicit /dev/null URI should be used to indicate no reply required.

the receiver may require other WS-A headers such as wsa:action, even 
though the sender which doesn't want to receive a reply and/or fault.
