I may be responsible for some confusion here. If that is the case
then perhaps this will help.

I believe I introduced the term "messaging" to this discussion. I
chose the word because I hoped it would be less confusing than
terms I am used to, i.e. signaling. CORBA Notification is a fine
thing. Messaging systems (involving store and forward) are also
fine things. But neither are really in the same domain as the
original discussion. Which does not necessarily detract from
yours :-)

Lastly I think that Jarls responses (and others) have followed
my original meaning.

All good,
