It looks to me that the scaleability of this design is limited by the capacity of the "Dispatch Mediator" and the GUI clients ability to cope with messages for all clients. I'd expect that a client would be able to disgard a message not intended for it very quickly, but there is still a limit to how many it can do this too in a given time. The weakness of the of the "Dispatch Mediator" is that it's a bottleneck for all messages.

Am I missing something, or is this how you also see the limitations of this design?
