Yes.  I think part of the problem is terminology.  There
are two ways to forward an operation, one is by proxying
and one is by chaining.  The former should be transparent
to receiving DSA.  That latter is never transparent to
the receiving DSA as it relies on cooperating DSAs.

The chain overlay, at least as released, does proxying,
not chaining, and is really misnamed.  It would be
better called a proxy overlay, or if extended to
also support chaining, called a forward overlay.
