Just to clarify, each individual section of type Data or AmqpSequence is 
bounded and has its size encoded upfront. The ability to stream and/or 
send unbounded amounts of data comes through sending multiple such 
sections in the same message. Right? (Whereas only a single AmqpValue 
section is allowed per message).
