Hi All,

I want to discuss is there a need to consider the node ability to
participate (NAP) in LLN functions?

I think that the node ability (considering; energy consumption issue,
routing issue, and environment-event issue), it is good for some
node-originators to know neighbor nodes/sinks ability ( NAP to-route,
or NAP continue-to-route, or NAP to-survive, NAP to-store, NAP
to-manage, or other abilities), but not sure if it is available in
some of the ROLL or 6lowpan protocols, nor sure if it can make side
effects to LLN performance. The node-ability can be useful if we have
different devices capabilities and conditions. This knowledge-factor
can be useful and may be included in some technique, or forwarding
table in the protocol specification.

I want to know your advises and opinion, thanking you,

Best regards
