Slightly off topic perhaps, but @Stateless is difficult to map to a
(CDI) scope. Everytime a method is called on a proxy, a different actual
bean instance can be used (but it can also be the same bean instance as
used for the previous call from the same thread)

The concept is actually not that far removed from a message passing
paradigm, but using synchronous communication and a typed target.

Kind regards,
