Such forwarding have a high probability of retrieving a Data that can satisfy the Interest, because every Data under /A/B/1/d can satisfy the Interest /A/B/1 unless rejected by a selector. However, this significantly increases the complexity of the FIB lookup algorithm and thus is not advisable.
Consumers are expected to send Interests that are sufficiently expressive. Interest names should not be shorter than the FIB entry name.
