I think the possibly more important thing to focus on is that the
sender of an INFORM mots probably gets a response when the 
notification has arrived at the destination. If not, then
it can decide to retry a few times, and finally it can decide
to save the information for anothe retrt later or for
a manager to pickup later.

Where as with a TRAP it is just totally unknown as to what happened.
