Jackek and I just finished a phone call and we've come to the conclusion
that Jacek is right.

Because RPC is based on the SOAP Data Model anything that is described in
the RPC section MUST be able to be represented in that model. Graph edge
names are already part of the model, a 'return value label' is not. So the
only way to indicate the return value is to use a graph edge label,
otherwise other encodings of the data model would have no way of encoding
the information.

So we're back to choosing between two options;

1.    Mandate the value of the label of the inbound edge of the node that
represents the return value of the method

2.    Say nothing about return values.

I have a fairly strong preference for 2
