Hi Greg and all the authors,

I am considering a simple mode of STAMP.
That means the reflector node only need a minimum configuration on the sessions.
Specifically,  the reflector no need to configure any specific session info, just to reflect any session received blindly.
I am not sure if this is allowed by RFC8972. Because I find the following text in section 3:

"Before a test session commences, a Session-Reflector MUST be provisioned with all the elements that identify the STAMP Session. A STAMP Session-Reflector MUST discard non-matching STAMP test packets."

It sounds like my expected behavior is not allowed. Am I right?
But I really find the simple mode of STAMP is useful.

Best,
Tianran
