Hmm, as fodder for a new working group (after all, one main
reason for the WSA WG's existence is to propose new WGs) 
that seems like quite a do-able idea.

While I don't want to lose track of the larger architectural
issues and alternatives that don't presume reliable messaging,
I have absolutely no objection to giving a high priority to
a) the definition of  what "reliable messaging" would mean 
in the WSA context; and 
b) proposing a WG that would develop a standard set of SOAP
headers to implement simple protocol(s) for this stuff.

XMLP recently talked about the fact that there is much 
overhead associated with starting a new working group and 
getting it to operate productively; I wonder whether that is
something that we could propose that XMLP take on once the SOAP 1.2
spec is finalized?
