The fact is that it's not necessarily true that it will be only matches 
that it fails to find. The "contract" is simply that it will continue if 
no xml pipeline (gen-[transf]-ser) is executed.

'passthrough' is the same used in James (actually it's passThrough).

An option could be "return" (IOW come back) or "delegate" (give 
processing responsinility to the parent).

In any case, the best one that will seem ok to me will go in there... 
after all it's the functionality we need, not the name ;-) (*)

The default must be backward compatible, IOW false.
