Yes, but I think the other detach path, when handling ATTACH or DETACH
requests, doesn't support domains with multiple endpoints attached either:

    // Currently, we only support detaching an endpoint if it is the only endpoint attached
    // to its domain.

But the ATTACH handler seems to accept attaching multiple endpoints to the
same domain?
