We really do need "cancel up to" semantics for reliable behavior.
Consider the case where the client has sent the query (or thinks it has)
but the server hasn't received it yet.  If the cancel request can arrive
at the server before the query fully arrives, and we don't have "cancel
all messages up through N" semantics, the cancel will not do what the
client expects it to.
