I'm ok with this one, but FWIW, it could be said to be a subset of
the requirement I championed to define or identify an interface that
all Web services can offer (I don't think we have a number for this one
yet).  So it could be removed, or maybe moved under it.  Just a thought.

I've made my objections well known.  Here's some alternatives I could
live with;

.. will not preclude support for reliable messaging

.. will support the ability for components to reliably coordinate
tasks over an unreliable network.  This may include solutions such as
reliable messaging, the definition of a coordination language, other
as-yet-unidentified solutions, or some combination thereof.

Basically, I'd like the wording to not imply that the best way in
which to achieve reliability over a network, is to ensure that every
message is delivered reliably.
