I wasn't anticipating the use of HTTP for such a connection as I 
think there would likely be problems trying to do bi-directinaly 
messaging (which you need to do for asynchronous messaging 
without polling) on an HTTP connection.

You can use HTTP for asynchronous messaging if you are using 
independent channels for requests & responses at the SOAP layer,
but that would be a non-anonymous reply address in the requests.
