   A conversation is the bounded series of messages that
   constitute a single instance of a business process.

Yes, this is how we've been thinking of it as well.

I agree that there isn't anything in the MS protocol that deals with
ending conversations.  However, there doesn't really need to be.  Each
side is executing a business process, according to a pre-defined
business process definition, and so both sides know when they've
reached the end.

In the glorious future (>= Rel 2.0), when we define (I hope!) an
abstract API between the caller-of-the-MSH and the MSH, we'll make it
clear that the caller tells the MSH "OK, this conversation is over",
and that's when the MSH can free up the persistent record of the
latest message sequence number and any other storage associated with
the conversation.
