A round trip is a security hole? Is every packet I send 1/80th of an
attack? If so, if I send 80 packets without RH0, then that is equally bad!
The issue here is that the network making a judgement about what packets
should and should not be delivered as requested requires that the
network be omniscient. If it were, it might as well figure out which
packets I will send, send them, and then I need not bother to write the
code to send them in the first place!
Do time-sharing systems refuse to run code that implements sorting using
a bubble sort?
