I tend slightly towards posting subsequent corrections against the original 
@id. This is because in my mind, the correction replaces the payload, not the 
message itself. However, if all current implementations refer to the ID of the 
previous correction, we should probably put *that* in the business rules and 
also call it a blockchain and tell that to our Marketing department.

kind regards,
