      Butch's suggestion of resending formal messages in order to prove their
      accuracy is commendable in intent, but ridiculous in concept. The waste of
      time and bandwidth is quite unnecessary.

      Let's say that a message was sent with a checksum attached - then all you
      have to do to prove accuracy is to recompute and check the checksum, which
      can be done WITHOUT retransmission, and independently by each receiver. It
      can also be done off-line. All that needs happen is to send a request for
      retransmission IF the message was wrong.

      In addition, a simple mechanism such as this also provides the ability to
      add authenticity checking and public key encryption. These features can be
      provided by a separate application on top of MT63 or whatever the
      transmission mechanism is.
