Regardless of whether people expect to know when their messages have
been delivered, I think it's indisputable that people expect that if
they come online after a message has been sent to them, they'll get
the message. They don't expect (as we found in user testing for Briar)
that the sender also needs to be online for the message to be delivered.
This is a pretty fundamental challenge for P2P messaging systems.
