If freshness is 0, then there's no caching of the data.  No meter how the clients name their Interests, they can't take advantage of caching.

How do selectors prevent you from sending an Interest to the producer, if it’s connected.  I send first interest “exclude <= 100” and cache A responds with version 110.  Don’t you then turn around and send a second interest “exclude <= 110” to see if another cache has a more recent version?  Won’t that interest go to the producer, if its connected?  It will then need to send a NACk (or you need to timeout), if there’s nothing more recent.

Using selectors, you still never know if there’s a more recent version until you get to the producer or you timeout.  You always need to keep asking and asking.  Also, there’s nothing special about the content object from the producer, so you still don’t necessarily believe that its the most recent, and you’ll then ask again.  Sure, an application could just accept the 1st or 2nd content object it gets back, but it never really knows.  Sure, if the CreateTime (I think you call it Timestamp in NDN, if you still have it) is very recent and you assume synchronized clocks, then you might have some belief that it’s current.

We could also talk about FreshnessSeconds and MustBeFresh, but that would be best to start its own thread on.
