we are in group meeting now and explained how LINK (= forwarding hint) works to Zhehao and Haitao. We also trying to figure out a solution to the function you wanted (NDNfit's original design was based on a misconception of LINK).

LINK is a forwarding hint, it just carries an interest to the place where the name in the interest can be used directly for lookup.
