I completely agree! We can not require that an entity be repeatable of 
course, although that would be the nicest: The server response would 
have always to be buffered, which we don't want.

Oh, and don't make an abstract class out of it. I don't want to be 
forced to inherit from a base class. Rather just implement an interface.
