The only reason for the Set/GetPayload in Interest is to provide a mechanism to set so called PacketTags (these tags can be associated only with Packet class).
These PacketTags, I think, should help you in your case. What you need is to create a class, similar to https://github.com/NDN-Routing/ndnSIM/blob/master/utils/ndn-fw-hop-count-tag.h and then Add this tag to the Interest's "payload" before sending out and Remove (=read) the tag after receiving.

Then I found that Interest class has a function named SetPayload(). Could I use SetPayload()? Should I design a new application? Could you please present a simple example file?
