I believe that "this" refers to "yes, I agree abstracting
request/response

Thus, I do believe we're on the same page. Because the messages cross
boundaries
of their sphere of direct influence, I also believe that there will of
necessity
be syntactic constructs that will be required to ensure that both
processors
are also on the same page as regards to messaging semantics that will 
influence the processing semantics.
