Um no :(.

The use of relates to has nothing to do with async in my mind: its just
a way to find an old message context and find the related operation
context. We don't care (at that time) whether that's used for async
correlation or counting potatoes.

However, if a relatesTo messageID is not found, that smells like rotten
fish to me: that means you sent my engine a message saying "hey I'm
related to this other message I (or someone else) sent earlier" and I
find that that's not the case. IMO that should raise a fault.

If you want to you can always override and replace this dispatcher.
We're talking about the default behavior.
