Nah, /all/ packets. 'Kick' the victim router hard enough so it stays 
down. Then wait for the dead-interval and the victim's peers 
will/should forget the sequence number. Then you can replay 

Though, not sure how you'd get past database exchange, as the 
router-being-spoofed need not use same state (DD sequences, LSA 
seqnum's), etc.

Seems theoretical to me too. ;)
