I think Brian has a point there. What we call "messaging pattern" is a
set of interconnectable sockets and devices.

What users understand is "design pattern" such as using one channel for
request/reply and another for publish/subscribe.

The former should be described in reference and any other rigorous
documentation and research papers.

The latter should be part of "getting started", the "cookbook" and
the tutorials.
