how did you come to this conclusion ? 

are you sure that the requests/responses don't get interleaved as a consequence
of receiving many queries ? to illustrate my point, you can have sth like:
query with id x received for data x
[other data]
query with id y received for data x
[other data]
resp with id y sent for data x
resp with id x sent for data x
