The AS management model is not intended to support all the JTS (or other
parts of JBossTS) config options. There are over 100 of them in TS as a
whole. Only the most commonly used ones are exposed. For the others
there needs to be a general mechanism per AS7-1496.
AS7-1481, AS7-1494, AS7-1482, AS7-1491, AS7-1492 and AS7-1497 all need
attention and should probably be assigned to the AS team. I've no idea
how I wound up as the default assignee for an AS module when I'm not
even on the AS team. Lack of better options at the time I guess.

How things are going on these tasks?
While you and david will go on with requirement and design I can take
care of AS7 management model for tx subsystem, going through and
cleaning it a bit.
I have also to check if mgmt model is full supporting all the JTS config
parameters. Maybe I'll ping you on this argument.
Have you already created any Jiras about these arguments I should take
over or just link? In case you haven't I'll create some to track my work.
let me know if you have any concerns
