I agree with you, but I don't think this approach is going to persist  
as the standard model.

Increasingly, transport and what we now call layer-7 are going to  
become conflated (we already see all these Rube Goldberg-type  
mechanisms to try and accomplish this OOB now, with predictable  
results), and that's going to lead to APIs/data types embedding this  
information, IMHO.

         Unfortunately, inefficiency scales really well.
