There seems to be yet another issue regarding the following :

If the *common* part is placed above the *message-specific* portion, then we
shall have a problem extracting the message type out of the encoded message
PDU. Since the common part contains fields such as : tokens, cryptoTokens,
nonStandard, which can be of variable length; the message-type cannot be
accessed without decoding the whole message.
One of the possibilities, in my opinion, is that the common part should be
made the first field of the message-body itself.
