I don't like the original wording either.  As well as the passive
voice, there is singular/plural gramatical confusion in "....a response
to one or more....are required....".

However I think we have lost something in Eric's rewording, which is
that the service might need responses to its callback requests
before it can send its response to the callback request.  Eric's
words only talk about the service sending callback requests.
Here's my suggested rewording of Eric's version:

"As one possible example, a service might need responses from one or
more callback requests before determining and sending the response
to the original forward request."
