It's a proposal at present, and no we don't specify that the name must
be carried on any messages except the initial one.  I think that's the
important one, and further messages which might correlate to that one
already have implicit needs for somehow making the correlation work...
once that's done the operation is obvious.  We do need to make clear, I
think, that it's the initial message which is important, whether that be
inbound or an outbound.
