I think you're glossing over a bunch of details, though.  E.g.:

- what happens if one of the underlying endpoints has an error?
- how do credits work?
- when you fi_send, how is it decided which of the underlying EPs is used to send the message?
- when you fi_recv, to which underlying [hardware] resource is the buffer posted?
- what ordering guarantees can be provided?
