Judging from what I have seen, most client developers seem to think that 
JEP-22 allows multiple replies.  Therefore Exodus is broken.  (No

However JEP-22 could use some explanations of how to handle multiple 
resources and events without a resource.  Maybe the Implementation Notes 
should be rewritten?
