well, it is not clear to me what exactly you would like to achieve, but, in general, this approach does not sound correct to me (unless the network environment is V2V or something like that).

In any case, you will have to modify the producer application to send unsolicited data and also NFD to forward unsolicited data packets (to the best of my knowledge, NFD can either cache or drop an unsolicited data packet). 

But again, how are you going to find a matching PIT entry to forward the data (unless you broadcast the data packet..????)? In general, this approach breaks the principles of the architecture.
