I looked at this page before.

However, the difference between "old" ARQ and HARQ I becomes not quite

So, you flood the receiver with a well defined set of blocks and the 
receiver reports any blocks which are missing?
At least, this appears to be the basic idea. Is this correct?

Will this work when there blocks of several flows mixed, as it happens 
on an air interface in mobile networks?
