Subject: RE: [ws-rx] New proposal for i019 and i1028
Maybe I am looking at this in a simplistic way, but I can not follow the issue you have with the current proposal and how the alternate proposal addresses the issue.
It seems to me the fundemantal problem is for the RMS to determine the state of the RMD (thus resolving doubt) Thus, if the RMD were to send the final acknowledgement along with the ack ranges that indicate the messages that are received by the RMD, RMS has enough information to reconcile its own status with the RMD (basically it can diff the sequence numbers to obtain those messages which were in doubt but confirmed to be received by the RMD per the final ack). I am not clear as to why we need to do more here.
Perhaps you can clarify for me why your proposal is a better proposal and what the problem that Doug's proposal is not solving. It seems to me that in both cases the protocol is changed, but the proposal you are making is more complicated but functionally equivalent. I would like to understand the motivation for the complexity.
