I personally agree with Christoph. But if there's consensus in the other
direction or this is a real blocker moving this forward, I can remove it
for the next version.
It's a simple branch because the check isn't exhaustive. It just checks
the first page. At that point you may as well just require the caller to
flag the bio/rq as being P2P, and then do a check for P2P compatibility
with the queue.
