First there was the Robust Configuration draft, which proposed
a verified-commit procedure.  Then there was some consensus
towards decoupling the verify and commit procedures.  Then there
was a suggestion to improve the commit procedure with a new
capability.  Old clients would still work because there would
be 1 or more new parameters that must be present to select the
new behavior.  The new confirmed-commit-1.1
capability would add a <persist> parameter to the
<commit> operation.

There are no proposed edits at this time.
The WG needs to decide on a basic solution approach first:

  A) add a new capability which changes the commit procedure
     to allow the original server to terminate without
     canceling the confirmed commit;  detailed proposal
     from Martin is still needed, and WG consensus on
     all the details is needed

 B) start a new draft for this work (now or later), instead of starting
    this new work now as part of the 4741bis 'cleanup' charter

 C) do nothing; do not change the commit procedure
