Hi Thomas,

I think with OF0 the DAGRank is uint8. But, in the Table 52b of
IEEE802.15.4e, the range of Join Priority is 0x00~0x3f. If the range is a
"MUST", we have to have a function mapping a DAGRank in 0x00~0xff to a
JoinPriority in 0x00~0x3f. Correct?

Would you please confirm with some expertise in IEEE802.15.4e if the range
0x00~0x3f is a MUST or not?
