Hi to all,

this debate continues to appear here now and then in the list ;-) and to 
my understanding, the positions are quite extreme here.

On the one hand, there are some standards, who do "heroic effort" 
(credits to DPR ;-)) and allow to configure even a SDU corruption ratio 

On the other hand, there is e.g. DPR, who does hardly any effort and 
says, there should be typically not more than three transmission attempts.

I would like to understand these positions a bit better than now and 
perhaps, there are some strong facts, which support the one or the other
