@ianswett: Good catch! It's useful to go back to the principle we have in place: if we want a PTO running, we need to have an ack-eliciting packet outstanding. I don't think there's a strong enough argument to create an exception here, so I agree that we should change this to always sending a PING when the timer goes off and there's nothing to send.

Since the title here is quite clearly the opposite of that, in the interest of transparency, I propose that you close this PR in favor of a new one that says send PING (and stack this new PR on top of #2655).
