[Louay]  I share the same opinion.   I think 1:n communication (1 is presenting page and n for controller pages) is enough at this stage. n:n mesh communication will make the spec and implementation more complex. But If we find use cases where this kind of communication is required, we need to consider the n:n case. Currently I don’t have a use case in mind.
