Sure. Checking that both sockets match accomplishes task, isn't it?
And the thing I really do mix is name of the device, comparing to socket
types. So I still propose to make all built-in types be implicit (and of course
all the application specific devices must be explicitly specified).

BTW, why only frontend socket type is specified in examples?

If the page still shows old names. But still any practical difference
between xrep and router or xreq and dealer for devices?
There is no xpub/xsub sockets, is that a mistake?
