I would prefer

4. Use ImmediateDestination where applicable.  In the special case of
response messages in the context of request-response,
ImmediateDestination is not applicable, and sending to anonymous instead
means using the InboundMessage of the exchange.  This provides a
reasonable default for the general case [1], covers the response case
and avoids using the undefined term "back channel", instead using the
binding-defined property InboundMessage.
