This diagram represents an attempt to partially refactor the Message 
Oriented Model.

The essential difference here is to bring out that messages have 
originators and ultimate recipients as well as senders and receivers; 
and the structure of the message is closer to the SOAP model.

It also brings out the role of the message transport a little more 

Some notes:

1. Originator and ultimate recipient of a message are really 
service-oriented concepts.
2. Correlation is a general concept, that applies elsewhere. The
