I think its trivial to test, as its almost the same as the test that a 
service is stateful.

1. Service has an endpoint with 'setPersistentValue([in] int)' int 

2. caller calls setPersistentValue(t) for some value of t

3. caller asserts GetPersistentValue()==t, i.e. that persistence is working

4. caller calls setPersistentValue(1) with a must understand header that 
isnt understood

5. caller calls GetPersistentValue(), asserts that the result==t
