Applescripts can only access the selected messages (according to the message list view) of a message viewer, and  cannot access the action message in a conversation view.   

The Conversation view gives the user the ability to select a single action message that the user want to an applescript to act upon but the applescript dictionary and implementation does not provide a way of accessing this message.  

Steps to Reproduce:
Select a specific message in a conversation view and run an applescript that requests the selected messages.  

Expected Results:
The applescript returns the message of the conversation view that the user is focused on.

Actual Results:
The applescript continues to return the list of messages selected in the message list view and does not return the message of the conversation view that the user has selected


It would be preferred to have a new applescript terminology to access the action message.
