... data5.2
A better protocol would be to eagerly send data for short messages in the header, assuming some fixed-size buffer is preallocated at the receiving end. The two-message protocol would be reserved for long messages. This marginally complicates the implementation but does not essentially change the rest of the discussion, or the benchmark results presented below, since the latter concentrate on the asymptotic case.

... direction).6.1
In a real physical system, this is similar to the change from a magnetized to an unmagnetized state in a magnetic material such as iron, or to the change from a solid phase (e.g. ice) to a liquid phase (e.g. water).
