Sounds very good to me. A few questions if I may ask:
* Does the system allow me to add multiple attributes to the messages?
I could then perform a query based on those attributes at any later
time.(Is this what the 'labels' do?)
* Are the labels limited to any number per message?
* Can I nest the labels?

I can see that.
