There are some secondary issues concerning how an implementation that
would allow c) causes itself to act like b) in the above scenario.
This is the case where a notification must be reissued. Depending on
how the notification is reissued you can get some non-obvious
interactions when considering scenarios more complex than the basic
one given.
