I'm not sure I understand what you mean here - are you saying that you can
start off as many streams as you want (via a bos packet at chain start), and
then allocate them as you need them (in essence keeping a large pool of
available streams and reusing them, hoping you don't need more than the
pool size) ?
If so, then it is certainly possible, but if not, can you please elaborate ?
