As per my AI, these are the updates to the WS-Addressing Core spec. that
would resolve this issue.

In Section 3.2, change,

/wsa:To
      This OPTIONAL element (whose content is of type xs:anyURI) provides
      the value for the [destination] property. If this element is NOT
      present then the value of the [destination] property is
      "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/anonymous".

to

/wsa:To
      This OPTIONAL element (whose content is of type xs:anyURI) provides
      the value for the [destination] property. In a reply message, when
      this element is not present the value of the [destination] property
      is "http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/anonymous". No other default
      values for the [destination] property are defined by this
      specification.

In Section 3.4, add a second "Note" under the first bullet of item one:

Note:

When using the XML Infoset representation, if the [address] property of the
[reply endpoint] message addressing property is
"http://www.w3.org/@@@@/@@/addressing/anonymous", then the wsa:To element
MAY be omitted in the reply message - see section 3.2 XML Infoset
Representation of Message Addressing Properties.

Can I please add this new CR issue against the WS-Addressing core spec.

The spec currently defaults the value of the To property to anonymous
(Core, 3.2); the goal of this decision was to optimize the request reply
synchronous interaction. However, as written in Section 3.2 this applies to
arbitrary messages. Just as in the case of ReplyTo, addressed in CR13, I
propose the defaulting of To to anonymous be moved to Section 3.4 and
limited to request reply interactions.
