No it doesn't, if you pipeline requests and responses. The spec does not
forbid this. For an example of extreme pipelining, see
http://mail.jabber.org/pipermail/standards/2008-February/017934.html
though in practice you probably don't want to be that aggressive /
optimistic about pipelining around a request that might fail. Stream
restarts can't fail, so they can be pipelined.

POOR.
