There's no real rule about it, it all depends on the stack and it's own set 
of handlers. In some cases you want the message passed so that another 
handler can continue to process the message, and in other cases you don't 
want to do that because further processing isn't wanted or needed. And if 
there aren't any other handlers in the message path that process the 
message then it doesn't matter if you pass it or not.
