Ok by me.  It would pass the 'easier to explain to my mum' test.
Unless someone has a special reason for using a null message, up,
perhaps for supporting generic behaviour common to all protocols:

    #$#mcp-cord _flags: debug
    #$#mcp-whiteboard _flags: debug

And where '_flags: debug' had some specific behaviour meaningful to the
'generic mcp message'?
