Subject: Re: [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: semantics of "at most once" delivery assurance

No matter what the DA is, any unACK'd message needs to be resent.
DAs have no impact on the protocol itself.

Re: [ws-rx] NEW ISSUE: semantics of "at most once" delivery assurance

Two related questions that need to be answered are:
can a RM receiver send a NACK in case of AtMostOnce DA? If yes, what is
the RM sender supposed to do when it receives such a NACK and it is
never going to retransmit the message (as it has already thrown away the
message) -- i.e. to prevent the RM receiver from NACKing the message
repeatedly, should the RM sender send a specific fault?
