As all SOAP 1.2 bindings, the MOM-based binding would be expected 
to make the sender's address available via the 
reqres:ImmediateSender property. If that was not the return 
address, the return address could be carried in a binding 
specific manner, for example via a header field of the underlying 
protocol. The EMail binding shows how you can do this for the 
Correlation feature[1].

Rather than implementing the ReturnAddress feature via a binding, 
one could implement it via a SOAP Module, as you are pointing 
out. Bindings are not supposed to consumme or otherwise process 
application modules (headers that are normally processed by 
applications); but bindings are allowed, I think, to augment the 
infoset to transport, and so a binding might very well decide to 
insert its own header before sending the message, that header 
being consummed by the receiving binding, and made available to 
the application via a specific property, for example 
myBinding:returnAddress.

A third option would be to implement the ReturnAddress feature as 
a SOAP Module explicitely handled by the application. The binding 
would not be involved at all.

Does this help?
