I was just thinking about cases where the MEP completes as a result of 
something other than a message receipt.  For instance - when an outgoing 
message send has completed, or when an error occurs.  It might be nice 
to have a single place where cleanup, etc, can happen without needing to 
know exactly how the MEP was closed.  It also lets the system do that 
work (determining the end of an MEP) for you instead of having to 
replicate it in your callback classes.  I'm not tied to it though.

+1, although I would also support letting the system do the isFault() 
check for you and having separate onMessage() and onFault() APIs in the 
callback class if people thought that would be less prone to coder error.
