[Ndn-interest] NACK

one detail that I have not seen mentioned so far: interest NACK versus data packet NACK.

It seems to me that interest NACK is relatively well understood: a forwarding node failed to forward a received interest hence generates a NACK to its previous hop.
data NACK seems to me not understood as fully: 
a) if a consumer gets a data packet that's not what it wants, it'd retry the interest in some way; 
b) any other forwarding node could drop an incorrect data packet, it can; whether it should generate a NACK on behalf of the consumer seems a separable question.

If consumer is not satisfied it has to send the same interest again, is there any other way out to get the data which may not been correctly received due to some modification.
