I don't like the exception-based process model you describe.  Making submission 
queueing the default - even for the single message case - greatly simplifies 
the interface.

And having a single hook for this opens up a lot of flexibility for things I 
can't even imagine right now, but know I will want to as the corporate monsters 
and governments continue to restrict whom I am allowed to talk to, and how.  
(Okay, maybe that's a bit hyperbolic.  Or not ...)
