Thank you so much for your interest in more diverse responses to DIS reception.
The DIS flag mentioned in RFC6550 and its interpretation is still work in progress.
You can see the most recent proposal in draft-zhong-roll-dis-modifications that expired just a few days ago.
I would very much appreciate if you could describe to us the kind of deployment that prompts for your stated requirement.
This would help up in finalising the draft.
With best regards

Objet : [Roll] DIS Multicast behaviour


I have requirement to receive multicast DIS messages from any node without resetting the trickle timer.

As standard indicates that if any node will receive the multicast DIS message , it will be considered as inconsistency with respect to trickle timer of recipient(RFC 6550 ,Sec 8.3).
It also indicates this behavior can be controlled by DIS flag.

But after checking the DIS flag option , it is mentioned that it is unused filed (Sec 6.2.1).
"Flags: 8-bit unused field reserved for flags.  The field MUST be
         initialized to zero by the sender and MUST be ignored by the

Please suggest if there is any way to stop the reset of trickle timer in case of reception of multicast DIS message.
