Does this resolve my concern? I think it doesn't. Also a Sr might well
address another device, doesn't it?

A call to .master_xfer with a message sequence implicitly expects ACKs
from the slave and doesn't tell anything about what should be done on a
NAK. So IMHO you must not send a P when the slave responds with a NAK,
but error out and let the sender decide if it wants to reply with P or
Sr.

Best regards
Uwe
