As I said, I have no problem adding reply=none.

However, I'm not sure that means I agree with you.

I don't agree. Since the message is a one-way, the WS-A implementation
should be ignoring any replyTo set on that message.

The behaviour you are describing is already in our model and was
introduced with our piggybacking of acks onto one-way messages.

 It does have implications at the level of the SOAP stack, because it
requires the ability to add SOAP messages into responses when the
operation is a one-way. This must already exist in all implementations
that support WSRM.

But I do not believe it affects the WS-A implementation. Certainly I
don't believe it affects the Apache Axis2 WS-A implementation.

Yes I agree it should layer cleanly onto WS-A core behaviour.
