 NOT delay an ACK for longer than an RTT, which ensures an ACK frame is sent
 at least once per RTT if new packets needing acknowledgement were received.
+If the max_bytes_before_ack transport parameter has been received, the
+receiver SHOULD send an ACK frame immediately once that many octets of packets
+containing frames besides ACK or PADDING have been received.

IoT devices may receive data at a lower power cost than transmitting. Firing up the transmit radio could be costly. For these applications it makes more sense to transmit ACK's at timed intervals. They might skip an interval if to few bytes have been received.
