I do not think putting multiple questions in one request isn't reliably
possible without heavy protocol changes;

I presume you mean "is" not "isn't".  Not sure it would require 'heavy' protocol changes -- I suspect all it would take would be to document how the multiple questions are packed into the query and how the multiple answers to those questions are packed into and parsed from the response. Since the question is included in the response, it shouldn't be too hard, just a small matter of programming... (:)).
