I think that this is a great idea - in fact in the very interesting 
schematron-love-in thread on "Workflow, phases and state machines" [1] 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?
