Subject: Re: [emergency] Message Type and Status

In both cases I don't think it's up to use to define the behavior of  
particular systems.  Our task is to abstract the distinctions that  
frequently make a difference in behavior.

E.g., a "test" message might be discarded by most, but might be  
essential for a network monitoring function.  Or a single application  
might have an "actual" and an "exercise" mode.

Our job isn't to determine that for the implementers, it's just to  
allow the most common and significant distinctions to be  
represented.  IMHO, of course...
