It seems to me that you're looking for WS-Reliable Messaging like
features. Have you looked at Sandesha2? That will give behavior you're
looking for. 

I think the core Axis2 platform should continue to have a simple,
lightweight async model based purely on threads to cover simple
patterns. If you really need reliable, long running async behavior then
its time to use WS-RM.
