@mirjak: I don't understand the pushback.  As @LPardue notes, if no faulty network elements exist, the mechanism should work just fine. 

I think the crux of the disagreement might be that the text suggests that the default stance is test and then use, where perhaps you are arguing for use and fall back. I honestly don't think it makes much of a difference, and in the absence of _overwhelming information_ we need to be taking the conservative stance on this spec.
