Yes, hence the name of the architecture: named data networking :-)

To me the so called "locator" is another misconception.

If CCNx were to adopt the Link approach to routing indirection, it could be done this way too (though using the ContentObjectHashRestriction field, not the implicit digest).

In an Interest, I can put one NameComponent of type ImplicitSha256DigestComponent and set Min/Max SuffixComponents to 0 and then include one or more Link objects in the Interest for routing.

The nameless Data Object ā€“ having 0 name components ā€“ will have a FullName of only its ImplicitSha256DigestComponent and that will match the name in the Interest.
