RE: Proxies and retransmissions?
I think it's best to say intermediate nodes SHOULD NOT retransmit of
their own accord. They should do so only when they receive a retransmit
from the NAS.
Is this an issue we need to address? How do current implementations
deal with retransmits?
Proxy retransmission is definitely a bad idea, since it violates the
principle of "Conservation of Packts", and thus could lead to congestion
problems. I don't have personal knowledge of proxy implementations that
retransmit, but then again I wouldn't be surprised if such implementations
to unsubscribe send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with
the word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
