Stack References When Fired in Backscripts/Libraries

I was (happily) surprised today when in a handler in a library that was put into use on init of the app
that a handler in
lib_initMyApp.livecodescript # now in the msg hierarchy
on bakeBread pDaKin
put the name of this stack
Then in a top level binary stack name… e.g.
if we call "bakeBread"
in the msg box and not
ergo "this stack" in a script only text stack in the message path is not seen as "itself"
but actually the target script from whence the command was issued.
So this means we don't have to parse for "the target" yay!
Am I right? Is this dependable moving forward? Any caveats?
