QMF provides the transport for objects and events but does not store old 
events.  I think that event storage would typically be done with a 
database or a flat-file storage system since you may wish to keep them 
for a long time.  Are you asking whether event storage should be a 
feature of QMan?  Should it be a separate component with WS-DM
