Yes, this is a good solution. I checked that receiving and responding to 
directed Probe messages is mandatory. This solution can be used in 
client implementations to retrieve all types and scopes of a device in a 
reliable way.

If we add this requirement to the spec we can also add a note about the 
interoperability for client implementations concerning discovery in 
dpws. Types and Scopes may be omitted in multicast discovery response 
messages but not in directed discovery response messages.
