encountered such as malformed XML? This will not match any fault defined 
in the WSDL. Also, what value does it take when of the the WSA faults

response is a fault?

In section 3.2 it says

    Populate the reply message's message addressing properties
       o [destination]: ...
       o [relationship]: ...
       o [reference parameters]: ...

Missing from this is [action]? The examples that follow should 
wsa:Action in each case.
