Its not gratuitously awkward to create your own Destination. You create your
EPR and then your Destination. From the amount of work that is required, it
certainly isn't more than creating a ClientPolicy and setting the EPR on the
ClientPolicy. However it does avoid the things I mention below...

This: c.getPolicy(ConduitPolicy.class).setDecoupledEndpoint(myEPR)

This has the following affects compared to my proposal
1. Creation of a new ConduitPolicy class - *which is unnecessary*
2. It creates a different way of creating Destinations that is only used
sometimes. You're saying that users should use the ClientPolicy to set up
the ReplyTo and for any other decoupled destinations (like FaultTo or
AcksTo), they have to create it using the DestinationFactory API.
3. It requires an additional Conduit method - Conduit.getBackChannel() -
which complexifies the Conduit concept.
4. Creates a non DI friendly API (see below)

c.getPolicy(ConduitPolicy.class) is not spring friendly at all. You would
have to create a <map>, <entry>, a clientpolicy bean, and then set the
decoupled EPR. I'm looking for a more bean oriented approach. I want to be
able to create a destination and inject it directly into my client.

You're also nesting the destination unnecessarily inside the conduit. What
if I just want to change the decoupled destination? Adding a ConduitPolicy
bean is unnecessary.
