Comment #2 on issue 669 by d.vas...@gmail.com: Disabling backward
compatibility for some messages only
We can always use message limits to drop messages which are larger in size.
Its better we have a explicit way to disable optional fields on some
message. But there are some messaging framework supports this functionality
to avoid DoS attacks with optional fields. Example Microsoft WCF provides
support for disabling extensible messages by not implementing
IExtensibleDataObject interface in a data contract.
