The above seems essentially correct yes. The sender/engine can
actually buffer messages beyond that which it has credit to send and
then send them later (if credit ever arrives), but I'm not sure how
much you would typically want to take advantage of that, versus
prefering some sort of application/client-level handling that can be
made to suit your particular needs w.r.t any buffering / pausing of
message sources / blocking etc you might want to do.
