Right. The point is to document the existing protocol rather than making
the layering perfect. The above grammar deals with that well.
Note that pub/sub message (which map to 'broadcast' message AFAIU) can
consist of a single frame, which the grammar does not allow for.
Also, the grammar allows for mixing different messaging patterns on a
single connection, which is not allowed in 0MQ.
