I see. That's fine for tolerating protocol failure. Now, the persistence 
is not only for the purpose of reliable protocol only, but also for the 
purpose of status query. If I said I support status query, it will be 
unreasonable for me to delete the persistence, since the spec doesn't 
indicate a deadline which I can delete the persistence after that..

Am I on the right track?
