Thanks... It would be great to better understand the nature of the misconception, and what a "region" is – I can't find a definition anywhere.

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.

Even after looking at relevant sections in the NFD developer's guide, we are blocked on finishing the NDNFit forwarding hint design by not understanding the specific definition of what  a "region" is, and how they should be confirmed in practice...

For example, see section 4.2 of the NFD developer's guide.

1) What is a region?
2) How should they be configured at each NFD?
3) [And, who is expected to configure them, and when?]
