On the other hand, neither of the mappings defined so far carry one channel
on multiple underlying connections. Since messages must arrive in the order
they were sent for a particular channel, it would certainly seem like you
could rely on frame interleaving even if the underlying connection did
deliver things out of order, since the BEEP layer would be required to put
them back in the right order before giving them to the profile.
