Diego and I chatted briefly off-line and the WSA spec allows for multiple 
wsa:RelatesTo headers w/o any restrictions on the contents of each (e.g. 
each can have a RelationshipType of wsa:Reply).  One option would be to 
define a new value for the RelationshipType attribute of wsa:RelatesTo 
(e.g. wsp:Reply) so that they can be differentiated. However, the response 
message is in fact also a wsa:Reply so I believe the current version of 
the ws-polling spec is compliant with WSA but this issues is something 
that should probably be explored in the future.
thanks
