I like this option, so long as the receiving entity also sends a descriptive
message to the sending entity.

PS I am developing an xml parser in java which works on byte buffers instead
of streams, but uses the java 1.6 / java EE  javax.xml.stream XMLEvent
interface so that it can more easily interoperate with other xml tools.
makes it easier to work with non-blocking io for a server, but also
unfortunately seemed
to require a dedicated xml parser.  Minimizing the required work for that
is what originally triggered the question, but I'm more concerned about
very clear with respect to what  happens to message  content.
