Since we started nitpicking...

We don’t specifically need the current structure of PITs, we need some state at the routers to avoid source addresses in interests. Also, to go even further, even if we had to put source addresses in [some] interests, that doesn’t mean that they have to be in the clear.

I’m also not sure how to follow that caching specifically is what allows us to avoid destination addresses.
