Quite frankly, dimp_messageview is no longer useful.  It is a relic of  
when dimp used to be a separate application.

It should be removed completely for IMP 6.1.  It would probably be  
useful to add a more general hook to allow the outgoing (and even the  
incoming) JSON response to be modified, which would allow the same  
thing to be accomplished.
