I don't think so, at least not yet.  The SOAP/HTTP binding describes 
POST/response (and plain response with GET or other request mechanism).  
The cases described don't fit into this.  They have a one-way request 
and a one-way fault (or response) to an unrelated endpoint.  They would, 
however, be covered by Dave Orchard's SOAP one-way proposal, which (I 
believe) calls for a 2xx response to complete a one-way.

It's an interesting case.  If there is a fault, the behavior is 
basically two correlated one-ways.  If not, it should act like a regular 
SOAP/HTTP request/reply (which is still two correlated one-ways, but 
HTTP is doing the correlation).
