Personally, I don't think it's a good idea for some server to hold
messages for later delivery. The sender should send the message and get
an ACK... or not. We all know that no ACK doesn't necessarily mean the
recipient didn't get the message, but an ACK does mean that they
definitely did. Clients like UI-View can send a message <n> times and
then "retry on heard" if necessary. If it's the original sender sending
or re-sending the message, it's them that's receiving the ACK. I think
it would add a layer of complication if they had to check elsewhere to
see if an ACK had been sent by the recipient.
