 hat's essentially the root of why I consider this a problem: if each individual namespace is likely to generate it's own mechanism of stringing together a series of transactions into a complete conversation, it makes life that much harder for the client developers.

On that note, do have a look at my self-reply, above, which, hinging on an idea from temas, may provide a generic means of tying these transactions together, and identifying completion.
