Sure, but the main piece here seems to be that an actor by some means
knows that it can  take on the role of the anonymous actor meaning that
it deals with all parts of the message targeted at the anonymous actor.

The difference in opinion seems to be that I would prefer to be formal
about saying *what* it means to act in the role of the anonymous actor,
rather than *how* that can be accomplished. Whether a message is
forwarded or not seems to be directed at how rather than what.
