[Ndn-interest] Scope of Link object?

This is not exactly correct. The granularity of the LINK can be anything.  It can be a prefix that correspond to something like an AS (/att), it can be a name that points to a network within the ISP (/att/net1/net2), or it can be a host within the network (/att/net1/net2/net3/host).

The specific usage would depend on what make sense for your application and environment.  With a more generic name (/att) you're relying on name-based forwarding to direct your interests within that network directly.
