Dont know if this is even near an answer to your problem, this is how
GMNS\BL handles streams:
1. input into the system (from the DL, the PL or a plugin) is gathered
by "Sensors", this means the BL knows dataflows from a sensor node type
are new\unsecure\un-marchalled\etc.
2. every data going out of the BL ends into a "visual", after which the
datastream will not be handled by the BL anymore. 

The relation of 1. and 2. with your problem is this:
1. All output-from-the DL\UI is going into a BL-node which is requested
as a input node, cq a sensor.
2. All nodes the UI wants to have the output from are marked too, this
time as visuals. 
So the datastreams up and down into the UI\DL\BL\PL hiarchy will be
without much overhead. This is why we have a BL anyway :-)

I'm I making any sense? [I've the feeling my dutch thoughts arn't very
well translated :)]
