If you use the name "Application" then it makes sense to require a
single application to support multiple processors. Jade is an example of
an application that supports multiple processors. If we use the word
***Consumer, then it makes sense that there should be a single consumer
per Producer.

Maybe, but it also seems very important. A processor that can't tell you
where your errors are is very frustrating. Perhaps there should
immediately be a "level 2" that supports this.
