Message Targeting/Distinguishing

Agents can distinguish messages that are intended for them by checking the <team-identifier> and <target> fields. An agent A listens to a message from a member of the same team that is targeted to A, to the entire team, or to some subset of the team that includes Agif. All other messages may be ignored, or since all team members know the locker-room agreement, agents may use these messages to monitor their teammates' internal states.
