I want to fix this in the way the devs like. I personally prefer this 
which requires CommunicationPolicy AFAIU.
But it's up to devs to decide. So I'd like to know their opinion before 
implementing anything.

Regarding CommunicationPolicy.DRAFT

Am I right that it blocks incoming messages on the server side and there 
is no way to ask a blocked client a question?
In this case this API is not suitable for the solution I propose. We 
need one more Access_Control_Type at least.
