I'm confused Amy .. I recall that Tibco and MSFT had different
interpretations of the old outbound operations and I had always
thought that that difference was recognized by these two patterns.

Is that not the case? Is there another pattern we should be 
including that has a single outbound / single inbound combination
yet does something different that we should be including?
