Yes, it is useful and good.  That is why we have TCP:
so HTTP and friends don't have to correlate.
Building request/response from one-way message via
message correlation will only be an academic exercise.
We do not need another request/response solution for the
range of problems solved by HTTP/TCP.  We do need a
solution for pipelined service invocation.  By making
request/response first class, more time can be focused
on new communications patterns.
