I think that this is a great idea - in fact in the very interesting
schematron-love-in thread on "Workflow, phases and state machines"  I
proposed that we extend Schematron to implement Business Transaction
However it may be that this simply provides a new way to sweep the dirt
under a different bit of carpet - a protocol is a solution, because it's
agreed by both sides, but would a standalone dispatcher be specified by
the document author or consumer?
