Technical Summary:

RELOAD recommends symmetric recursive routing for routing messages. An optional extesion that can be used to provide shorter routes for responses (reducing the overhead on intermediate nodes) consists in supporting a relay peer routing mode. This defines the required extension as well as describes potential use cases where it can be used.
