The queries and responses are processed and routed identically by the
servers, and their overall structure is identical with the exception one
having a <query/> tag and one containing a <response/> tag.  It's that
similarity in structure and treatment by the servers that brought about
using the same tag for both...

One other possibility, which hasn't come up yet, is for an info packet
that is a response to a query, to contain both the response to the sender
and another query for them :)


PS: Yes, I'm sending this from the conference, learning tons and meeting
lots of cool people!
