Absolutely, and this is what I meant when I started my answer by saying
that I only had a very partial answer. I was pointing you to a model
that deals with a very similar though not exactly the same problem. The
reason I pointed this model out to you, is that knowing of such a
similar model can sometimes help you find the correct model, or make it
easier to derive such a model yourself.
