I don't think we need to special-case things as you suggest since the  
rules for sending a message[1] already require the wsa:To to have the  
same address as that contained in the EPR to which the message is  
sent. Therefore the only time the wsa:To value can be defaulted is  
when the EPR to which the message is sent has an 'anonymous' address  
and I don't see that happening regularly with request messages  
because, if it did, you wouldn't know where to send then.
