The tests currently use the same Global Element Declaration (GED) 
'echo' for both request and response which reflects my personal 
preference not to use 'wrapped' style documents.  

However this does impose an architectural style on implementations:
the current tests require an endpoint which handles both 'echo'
requests and 'echo' responses to dispatch based upon wsa:action, 
and not the GED. 

*but* I'm told GED dispatching is intrinsic to more than one
of implementations we hope to demonstrate interoperating
during CR.

I understand that this may be contentious, but the only 
way to support both world views is to make the GED of the echo 
request an 'echoIn' element and the GED of the response an 
'echoOut' element, as per IBM's public endpoint:

I'm happy to make such a change, but this will impact anyone 
who has implemented the testsuite, so please raise any objections 
you have ASAP.
