Exactly right! Please, Jim, keep it up.
Folk on this list are confusing what the protocol states MUST be done in
order to be implemented with what the protocol's algorithm states MUST
be done to a message. Any protocol has to have language with respect to
the former. This protocol has NO language with respect to the latter.
There is nothing that needs to be done here.
