Check out Richard Gaskin's writeup on the message path:

Behavior objects are not at all like frontscripts, but are more like
local backscripts. That said, it sounds from your description that
behaviors fit your purposes more than the use of frontscripts does.

You wouldn't normally pass a message on after a behavior button has
handled it (or not) because it would be at the end of the message
path. Behavior objects also allow you to override a default behavior
when desired.
