WSDL 2.0 supports a number of asynchronous MEPs. However, as WSDL is a model for describing web services rather than how they are orchestrated, I don't see the use of supporting the async interaction patterns as you mention. These relate to how services are used in conjunction with one another, rather than consumer/service interaction. Your reference to BPEL is prescient - orchestration languages are where such patterns apply, rather than description languages for the services themselves.
