[Nfd-dev] Proposed NDN spec change

Dear all,

The current NDN spec defines that Data packets without FreshnessPeriod are considered always fresh ("data packet cannot be marked stale", http://named-data.net/doc/ndn-tlv/data.html#freshnessperiod).

This creates a problem for some applications that we are currently playing with and I would like the spec (and subsequently NFD implementation) to be changed to do the opposite:  when FreshnessPeriod is not specified, data packet should **never** be considered fresh.

We have discussed this issue in the past (http://redmine.named-data.net/issues/2440), but haven't finalized the decision.  If there are no objections, I would like to proceed with the change ASAP.
