very few things are impossible with computing, if any.
Maybe the question is feasibility: in an ad hoc environment, if a sending node A has to nail down a receiving node B, A has to keep track of who are surrounding itself all the time..

A better approach may be to let each receiving node of a packet decide wha to do with the pakcet, e.g. whether it wants to further forward the packet.

The most recent NDN hackathon (http://4th-ndn-hackathon.named-data.net/ <http://4th-ndn-hackathon.named-data.net/>) worked on a project in this area, someone on this list should know the status of the code out of that effort
