If I'm understanding correctly, I think the key point here for both you 
and Ben is really more about the presentation and less about the 
underlying transport, in this sense: it's important to you to be able to 
separate out messages for lower priority discussions and deal with them 
at your leisure, and without feeling pressured to do so by the way 
they're presented to you.  Does that sound right?
