I'm copying Dave Cridland, from whose patch that text emerged.

In the Council chatroom after the meeting just now, I proposed the
following text:

   In addition, this enables entities to establish which stanzas
   might need to be resent, thus reducing the likelihood that an
   entity will send duplicate stanzas.

I tend to agree with Nathan that "eliminate" is a bit strong here. I'd
rather underpromise and overdeliver than overpromise and underdeliver.
