Exactly. There is a big tradeoff here between complexity of
implementation and the efficiency of the LCUP protocol exchange. It is
important to allow implementors to have some flexibility while still
assuring that the protocol works reliably. In many cases, efficiency
tradeoffs can and should be left in the hands of the implementors.
