Sounds like a useful feature to me in general. They can also be implemented as different strategies (see Junxiao's various best-route strategies).

> One immediate application example is to give the Broadcast Strategy a parameter that states if it should send out Interests with a new nonce.
> A new nonce allows the broadcasted Interests to travel different paths with overlapping nodes (or reaching the same content source) without being dropped by the duplicate nonce detection. This small alteration can be very useful when the duplicate Interests are used to compensate for link problems (delay, loss) on one of the paths.
