BTP Issue 85 : Relationship by separate container, not containment

Category: minor technical
Draft 0.9 specifies that relationship between btp messages is represented by containment of one in another. However, this doesn't fit well with most of the btp:btp related cases - CONTEXT_REPLY, ENROL, PREPARED especially. It also requires the relatedness to have a polarity, which isn't always easy to define. All that is actually needed is to define what processing or other semantic implications there are in relating particular types of message, and have a minimal way of expressing that the messages are related.
Suggested solution:

The meaning of each relationship is defined for each legitimate combination on a case-by-case basis in terms of what processing is required

In XML, represent "related" (&) by having an enclosing construct (<btp:related> that contains the related messages as immediate children.
