I think that local mechanisms are the best.  When you can't send the 
message, hold it.  The next time you see a packet from the recepient, 
send the message.  Of course the user should be able to apply timing and 
control constraints to easily accomplish a reasonable behavior.  Old 
messages might cause the user to be prompted to send outstanding messages.

I don't know what UIView does, but this is what I implemented i JeAPRS 
and I seem to recall seeing that behavior somewhere else when I 
implemented it.
