Subject: Re: [ebxml-msg]

You are still comparing a date and time to an interval.  You need to either
convert TimeToLive to an interval since some date-time origin or add a
date-time origin to Retriesx RetryInterval.

In addition, the comparison has another problem:  The time from the initial
message to the first retry is undefined. The specs (MSG and CPA) do not
define the timeout used following sending the message and they do not say
whether RetryInterval applies to the time before the first retry or only to
the time between retries.

 Spec section 7.4.5:
TimeToLive MUST be greater than the product of Retries and RetryInterval
the message was originally sent.

Your comments:

  You cannot directly compare a dateTime quantity against a duration

This does not directly compare.  TimeToLive is compared to (Retries *
RetryInterval) SINCE the message was originally sent.

I believe this is correct.  How would you prefer to say this?
