Actually, it sounds to me like the seperation of physical and logical layers.

On the one hand, I have some data to move. Multiple documents, multiple fragements,
whatever. (logical)

On the other hand, I have a stream. It can pass any number of documents or fragments.

The fragments in the stream could be all from one document or from different queries
on different documents or from one query applied to a set of documents. It shouldn't

And how one might reassemble fragments back into a large document is another 
problem, though the stream should provide sufficient information to do so.
