I have to disagree with this. The ReliableMessagingInfo
element applies to the message, not to a particular hop
along the way. Note that David has crafted a revised section
on RM in the draft we've been collaborating on which we
hope to get to the list today (although, we recognise that
it still needs work).

This one I'm not sure I understand. I thought that we agreed
in Tokyo to flatten the TPAInfo section by moving all of
the child elements to be direct decendants of Header.

What information was missing from TPAInfo anyway? I'm not
clear on what the proposal really suggests.

Since we're going to spec the schema using XMLSchema, we can
be more precise in the typing of elements and attributes.
I agree that the spec needs to be tightened up for this
particular element.

I'll have to review David's revision of RM to see what that
has to offer.

I assume that the subject refers to URI elements in RoutingHeader
not RM. Agree that these need to be more precisely defined.
As to defining them similarly to the PartyId element...
I had actually proposed to David in our discussions that
instead of defining different elements, that we re-use
To and From but with precise wording that the PartyId
MUST be an URL form of URI (e.g. something addressable).

This also brings to mind a security issue (possibly) as
if an intermediate signs a header (with the added RoutingHeader
element) then it MAY be important to be able to identify
the intermediary with the specific RoutingHeader. I hadn't
thought of this before, but it MAY be important to consider.

David has added a section on persistence in his RM draft
proposal. It doesn't get into "how long" as this is correctly
identified as being something that the parties MUST agree
upon and have reflected in the CPA. A new element is being added
to the CPA for this purpose (e.g. to capture the persistenceDuration
with which a message is to be archived).
