If your message isn't processed due to an internal client error, how
are you able to trust that the client knows that it wasn't processed,
and doesn't just send a receipt blindly?

This is a fairly pointless aside, though - as previously noted in the
thread, you can't use Message Receipts for client to client
reliability.
