The spec already provides for this. The deliveryReceipt attribute of
the QualityOfService element, when set to OnceAndOnlyOnce requires that
an MSH deliver the message in a manner that ensures that the recipient
will receive the message once and only once.

Unfortunately, the wording is possibly a bit fuzzy because it only talks
about the To Party MSH, which is incorrect as it also requires all intermediary
MSH nodes, but that was certainly the intent.
