I tend to see handlers as belonging to the application space, as Henrik, and hence it feels funny to
see them down below the XPLayer. Aren't you actually looking for a new service provided by that layer,
ie dispatching to handlers, and if so, shouldn't you introduce instead a new primitive (or adapt an
existing one)?
