Dear Michal,

I think the short answer is that the server replays notifications as
they were was recorded.

Operational state is about "in use" values and on many systems it is
impossible to take a consistent snapshot of operational state and
hence clients will have little chances to obtain consistent snapshots
and to do meaningful validation of received notifications. (Clients
would not only need a consistent snapshot to validate a received
notification but they would also need a snapshot taken at the time the
notification was generated.)
