Dear ALL,

I’m reading the NDN Packet Format v0.3 Transition Plan. In the CanBePrefix Switchover section, it is described as follows.

This step discourages the use of CanBePrefix=1 to improve network performance. 

My Questions are :

1. What intention do you use the “discourages” in the sentence above? Could you elaborate a bit?

2. Can I use the CanBePrefix flag in my new applications?

3. You mentioned performance degradation in the sentence above, do you have any test results about performance of CanBePrefix? If you have it, can I get it?

Best Regards,
HS Kim
