Yes, it would be great to have a generic spec that worked for mapping to MOMs or other mechanisms -- confining the definition of reliability to the use of existing MOM infrastructure seems restrictive.

I don't really want to go into a detailed comparison of 
WS-ReliableMessaging and the OASIS spec (or the related BEA specs that 
were published recently).

However, the authors of WS-ReliableMessaging explictly wanted to be able 
to support binding to "native" reliable MOM systems, rather than only 
supporting reliability over HTTP. IMO the WS-ReliableMessaging spec is 
at least a better starting point for doing that.

Personally, I would like to see these various standards efforts 
converge, if possible.
