In my memory you said you had issues with the dbus testsuite precisely
because of this: sendmsg() then recvmsg() done by the same thread.

Because I'm currently at work, and so I can't spend the time to answer
everything or do stuff.

Being in a testsuite does not make it a "user case". There are a lot of
weird behaviors you could put in a testsuite, that the standards don't
actually enforce, and which don't actually have any real use.  I do
believe there is a potential need for asynchronous behavior, while I
don't believe there is a potential need for post-mortem behavior.
