The criticism was not aimed at the BL at all.  Quite the opposite, in fact.  I
was criticising a model that would reduce the role of the BL to that of a
simple messenger, doing nothing but relaying information between 2 systems,
the DL and the PL.  The BL is capable of much more than that (BL -> BL
communication, for example).

You should know by now that I'm not some monster that goes around trashing
other people's code :-)
