In that case why doesn't RM just use the WS-A defined anonymous URI  
for the ReplyTo ? Use of the HTTP response already provides the  
correlation you need to tie the response to the wrm:Address you  
supply in the request. If that isn't sufficient then RM could mandate  
an additional SOAP header in the response that echos the value back.
