Thanks very much for your explicit explanation.
Then, for my understanding, it depends on me to decide whether the
satisfied interest will be forwarded again towards other nodes (someOtherNode
in your example) or not. If I send it to both AppFace and NetDeviceFace
which share FaceId, it will do this. And also, from my simple observance
from L3RateTracer, if one node connects to two other nodes, face 0 and face
1 is the NetDeviceFace, while face 2 will be the AppFace. Is my
