[Nfd-dev] best-route behavior

Hi Hila

The consumer app needs to retransmit a similar Interest (same
Name+Selectors, different Nonce). The retransmission will be forwarded to
another nexthop (toward D).

best-route v3 has no memory beyond single PIT entry.
This means, even if a retx finds a different producer, a different Interest
still needs consumer retx.
The assumption is: routing protocol is expected to erase the incorrect
route (toward C) shortly.

Yours, Junxiao
