@Danthar I did have this idea also, build a request that is sent to all actors, and they either respond with the data or a 'not applicable' style message. I think you are right however in that it should be used for very specific cases only. I have been lucky that we have had a very simple project to create which i did using the actor framework throughout, it has become clear, as you say, that for crud stuff its a lot more work.
we have a much bigger project that combines real-time and non-real-time elements, so each part is doing what it does best sounds like the best approach!
