Is the FIX protcol built around the design that one connection has access to multiple accounts?
The fix protocol is build for professional and backoffice use. NATURALLY it supports multiple accounts - it is quite common to have those, esepcialyl if you are a larger operation, and this is what Fix targets.
If you ever read the FIX specs you get a look at how big guys wor - TONS of instrument types and order types that have no relevance in normal brokerages. OTC stuff etc.
Multiple accounts is baseline. You could not run fix on a backoffice operation without that.
