According to the SOAP 1.2 specification[1], a feature expressed as a
header is a SOAP module, and will be processed according to the SOAP
processing model. Binding features, as I understand them, result from
the carrying of the message with certain properties and do not show in
the message.

Request-response can be achieved via a module (e.g. specifying a
reference and a reply address) or via a binding (e.g. using an HTTP
request).
