* Description

This case involves an in-only operation.

* Can we achieve with current specs?

Yes and no.

WSDL 1.1 and 2.0 both support an 'in-only' MEP.
SOAP 1.1 + WS-I BP 1.1 (see R2714, R2750, R2727) allows one way 
messages using the HTTP SOAP binding
SOAP 1.2 doesn't define a one way (at least not an in-only one) MEP and 
the SOAP 1.2 HTTP binding requires a SOAP envelope in the HTTP response 
entity body.

* Minimal change necessary to support?

Define SOAP 1.2 one-way MEP. Modify SOAP 1.2 HTTP binding to allow an 
empty HTTP response entity body.

* Ideal solution with no restrictions on changes?

As above, no additional changes required.
