It is impossible to use the routing protocol to communicate with servers
that only support GIOP 1.0 or 1.1, because the information contained in
struct MessageBody does not contain enough information to determine the
alignment requirements of the contents of body member. The GIOP 1.0 &
1.1 RequestHeader struct contain an octet sequence for principle as the
last member, and specify no alignment requirements for the message
body. Thus, it is impossible for the final router to determine the
proper alignment for the message body when marshalling a GIOP Request
message for delivery to the target object.
The same problem applies to the Response message.
