"In that regard I would expect it to try to take a position with repect
to the semantic properties of chains of
            intermediaries, where there are questions about whether the
relative positioning of XP blocks in messages and the order that
messages
            (and blocks) are processed at intemediaries semantically
significant or not to the overall operation performed by the chain (and
to
            the partial view of the operation seen by the intermediaries
the message passes through)"


My understanding is that Intermediaries only process headers and not the
body of an XP message.  Right?  Is that what you meant by : "...and the
order that messages (and blocks) are processed at intemediaries
semantically significant..."?
