I would like to put a new proposal g on the table for discussion to 
resolve the ws-man heartbeat requirement.

This is a modified version of proposal d, the difference is that the 
verify notification is send a number
of times indicated in the count input parameter, at the regular interval 
indicated in the interval input parameter
, where the parameters are part of the optional verify element of the 
getStatus request.  The verify notification is sent during the requested 
interval /count regardless of how many other notfications have been sent 
on the

This simplifies the specification, and implementation, in that there is 
no need for the event source to have
knowledge of the last event sent on the subscription.  This was one of 
the main objections voiced for option d.

The objection to heartbeat was you could not turn them off when you 
don't need them. Sending a getstatus
with a count of 0 would turn off the verify notification sequence.   
When the sinc feels unconfortable
about the status of the event delivery capability, it can send a 
getstatus with an interval and count appropriate
to its current paranoia level.

I do believe that this warrants another proposal for consideration.  It 
is significantly different than the current
proposal d.
