Fair enough. Its trivial to implement either way :)

I would say that exact matches trump partial matches. But this sort of
thing really should go into this JEP.

Alternatively, we could just say that if a packet arrives with delivery
semantics on it, then those semantics are processed in isolation. Only
when there are no matching sessions do the "traditional" (XMPP-IM) rules
come into effect.
