we fully agree, but there doesn't appear to be a saner default  
behavior for FRS. Specifically, in the absence of datastore  
versioning, switching to 'resume by default' would effectively kill  
the journal; adding a per-activity flag would add confusion and break  

After FRS, we intend to very carefully consider this issue. It's non- 
trivial, and interactions with multiple activity instances, bulk  
data, volatile state, etc all need to be considered. The current  
tentative plan is to have a Journal Summit as soon as FRS is out the  
door and the immediate post-FRS activities quiet down a bit. You  
would certainly be invited.
