1/ Can we use this rendezvous model for real-time communications like
video/audio conferencing? Not sure how the indirection will affect the

2/ If we plan to use Interest-Interest communication, how do we handle the
case when the producer doesn't have a routable prefix (or doesn't know he
has)? The Kite approach (i.e., using PIT to do reverse path forwarding) is
a significant change to the architecture and I still don't understand the
implication of this change yet.
