Subject: Re: SequenceNumber [was:minutes 21-Dec-2000 tr&p con-call]

Mr. David Burdett, 

I agree with Mr. Martin W. Sachs. His suggestion is same as my intention.
In addition, I'd like to ask you to not remove the notification function
of reset of SequenceNumber. If a conversation continues for *very long
time*, the SequenceNumber might be reset in the conversation at a time.
For example, when upgrade of middleware, when system crash and its
repair, etc. The notification function of reset of SequenceNumber is
needed for such situation.
