Happy to help. Quick note - the debugger link was courtesy of Graham

Re: scalability - I'd vote for such a solution, where your server's
listMethods response includes listServices and methods particular to
your server (listServiceMethods, listMethodDirectory, etc.) rather
than aiming for listMethods transparency - if only to draw attention
to the varying degrees of energy required to fulfill a request. Of
course this is entirely dependent on client relationships.

Dictate. Become the standard.

A hui hou.
