Of course, going back to SOLICIT is a bit wierd.

But if the client got more than one advertise,
it chooses the best one. If this one fails,
it could settle on a less preferable one.
Of course, it there was only one ADVERTISE,
or the rest of them were unacceptable, the client
MUST abort (in my opinion), or else we could get an
infinite loop of SOLICITs.
