As I can see from the model, it just states 'message has messages path'.
No indication of multiplicity (I think that's the right term in UML).
There can be several of these message paths, so may this can be
interpreted as being either or both?

Francis,

There is difference between prescribed mesage path and actual message 
path (runtime), both may be of interest. Is this something that fits 
into the model ?
