Pouria,
Thanks again for the overview, which complements your first document nicely.

Alfredo,
Could you please elaborate what you mean by in-network processing? Are you
referring to a distributed way for the nodes to "consume" this data, some
fusion as the data trickles up the DAG, or something else?

Thomas
